    Converted freehub body with spacers, so I have the option to run more than one cog at the same time.

    Nice. We really will match. Get ready for this next post of mine. Should be exciting...

    Awesome, as long as it doesn't snow Wednesday night. Don't think I can blow off an exam to ride my bike in the snow. The prof might not be too sympathetic. Have to get the fixed wheel for the snow. Don't really want to go s/s with only a front brake.

    I don't think it's going to snow for the next week or so anyhow. Rain rain, warm and more rain. It will probably be after x-mas before this thing is able to happen. But it's fun to dream (and make posters) isn't it?

    This could be good for someone here, I am sure the seller would allow local pickup. Does anyone here ride a Cyclemania rig? They came up in conversation here a little while ago and I think the consensus was that they are okayish, just a bit ulgy.

    Yeah, that was me curious about them. Complete for $495 on Bloor. Pretty decent components as well. Going to watch that one and put a late bid in perhaps.

    i stand corrected; i was just thinking that for $2 it's probably less hassle.

    those race face cranks,rings and XTR BB are still up for grabs I think
    Is the two SS cogs with spacers a difficult setup? I'll be running 42 in the front and with a tensioner, it would be cool to have a couple choices. Polished? Urbane? Fully down for fat tyre Leslie Spit snow rides...all we need now is a good dump of snow.

    it would seem that the spacer / cog set up is even less fussy than a SS specific hub. the other cog would just slip on the freehub as a spacer does. maybe the experts here could comment on this but i would imagine that running a derailleur as a tensioner would be a great choice as you wouldn't have to worry about chainline...

    It would be cool to run two cogs, and two chainrings. Say like 34/17 for offroad and a 36/15 for slop covered roads.

    I can't see a problem with using two cogs with spacers. If it was one chainring I would set the 2 cogs a little off center of it so the chain line would be a little off with both, but nothing severe. Not nearly the chainline issues with s/s as there is with fixed. The tensioner should have enough lateral movement to work. A deraileur would work no problem. I would still make sure I had non-ramped chainrings and cogs even with a tensioner. Other option is to do like Sirrobin did, do a double chainring/double cog. Either both on the inner with spacers and long CR bolts, or one on the inner/outer. Should work with a mtb crank. Would still work with a s/s specific hub, mine is made to be used with spacers, I just threaded a cog on instead. Can't get it off now, but that's not the issue.

    38/16 and 35/19 is the magic number for on/off road. Same chainlength.

    Wouldn't the deraileur put too much side force on the chain if it were fixed in place as a tensioner and you're running two different cogs? Never tried it, but seems to me like it would always be trying to pull the chain off. I have used one cog on the back and a MTB triple on the front which worked well. 48X38x28 on the front gives you a pretty large range to work with on the back- regular,easy and 15%grade with a load easy.

    The ****mano cogs slide on just like cassette cogs....a bunch o spacers and the standard lockring.

    I've never used the deraileur as a tensioner so I can't say 100% if it would work with 2 cogs. I've read about them and seen it used. In theory it should work if the chain was a little off. I don't like pull down tensioners though, not enough cog engagment. My mtb has horizontal drops so I manage to do with out a tensioner.

    Do you use a tensioner to run the triple crank to one cog?

    Bmx cogs right? I ordered a cheap one from Misfit. I was too lazy to run around looking for a non ramped 14t cog.
