Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Boone ti cog for fixed disk hub

I want to fix my 2004 Redline Moncog. I have a properly spaced (110mm) disk hub, and if I can mount a cog on the disk side, I can have a fixed-free flip flop. Anyone know were I can get a Boone ti cog or something similar to bolt onto the disk mount? I can't seem to find anyone selling these.

If you don't know what I'm talking about, lookie here...

Not sure if they're still making cogs. Just chainrings. Brett is now doing the work. Here's his email: Boone ti cogs

They are apparently still making cogs. I emailed Bruce and he said they could have one for me in 6 weeks.

How much did he say it would cost, if you don't mind? Also, what front hub did you find with 110 spacing?

The 2005 and a few earlier years as well models of the monocog came with 110 rear disc hubs.

I didn't ask him the cost...but according to the website, 40 something.

I'm not using a front hub..its a redline hub threaded for a freewheel on one side. Its basically a BMX hub with a mount for a disk brake on it.

Brett charged me $2.50 per tooth. I have three such cogs 18, 20, 22. Note, you can always get a Shimano DX cog for $5 and drill it out. You'll also have to grind the inner slines down too to fit your hub.

Another venue is Endless Cogs. They use to make the Leg Breaker. Currently on their site they only list their Kick Ass Cogs. http://www.endlessbikes.com/products...nts/index.html

no tools...no garage...no friends with tools or garages...that pretty much rules out cheaply drilling out a regular cog.
