    VeloSolo Disc Cog

    If you haven't seen them

    http://www.velosolo.co.uk/shopdisc.html
    I just purchased the 15t for my MTB...
    These are great cogs, well made, fit perfect, bolts included, and no lock ring The 15t does have a wee bit of chain interference on occasion, but very very minimal.

    For anyone with a disc hub that may want to try MTB fixed without building a wheel, be sure to consider one of these.

    I run 32x18 free on the trail, but have found without owning a car this year, getting to the trails has been an issue, 32x18 spins you all the way there. So I bought the 15t so I could ride fixed to the trail and flip it over or punish myself once there.
    32x15 on a 29er comes out to about 62gi, so not the fastest, but a hell of a lot better than 32x18, and running fixed makes it that much better.

    I have been riding offroad fixed with both a 17t and 16t tomicog for a couple of years now.

    I know Phils along with Surly both make a fixed hub with disc mount on the other side, but a double fixed hub? Bolt on?

    I got the velosolo stateside through Bens

    It's good to know that there is someone else making the same product though.

    Cannondale has a 4 bolt rotor design? And I'm sure lots of companies are making those 4 bolt rotors...
    I hate when companies pull crap as such, why can't we find one or two standards and stick with them
    $$$

    As far as the 32x15, commuted to work on the 9er, not too bad. Not ideal, but I didn't feel like I was spinning a hundred miles an hour and I kept my speed up enough that I got to work in about the same time as usual.

    I had a really nice custom wheelset, but some guy in Australia offered to buy them from me for a lot more than I paid, so I'm back on the stock wheelset, with their proprietary 4 bolt hubs.

    When does the Centerlock cog come out?
