The wait for Boone delivery is over. :) Got my new cogs.

Today's setup for riding at 48x24. Yes, I change cogs as often as FoShizzle changes bikes.

Pictures and views of cog on my scraped and dinged Kona.

Something different about this cog. Can anyone spot it? ;)

Sweet!

How is that Nashbar hub working for you? I am still waiting for my Boone 23 tooth cog to put on my Nashbar hub, at least now I know what it will look like!

Why such a huge chainring/cog combo? Just wondering!
-Sean
I want to lessen the stress off the slider, cogs, chainring, and chain. The idea started with the slider slipping under maximum pedaling force. Another benefit is less wear, seems that wear goes up geometrically with smaller cogs. (Then there's the 48x16 option :rolleyes: )

Bikeny, the Nasbar hub has been build and forget - no problems. I like the lock ring too, much easier and cleaner than the cassette lock system.

The slider is standard Kona with vertical dropouts. Disc brake moves with the slider. Yes front is Boone too - one piece spiderless - they do a nice job. :)

Boone Site

Boone doesn't have much of a descriptive site. I guess the bread and butter comes from wedding rings and he just kinda does bike stuff in his spare time.

What are the single speed spacers for? My guess is to space out the cog on the cassette, but how do you decide how many you need? More importantly he doesn't have any pictures. I'd love to see what the bash guard looks like. What about the "ISO Disc Brake Fixed Gear Cog"?

How long did it take to get your Boone ?
My order was special so it took some time, I ordered in August and got in line to wait for the bigger Ti stock to arrive and while waiting I spec'd it to be thicker for a 1/8" chain, along with another two cogs. I don't think you'll have to wait so long for normal size cogs.

Team Stylo SS, the last generation before they went to outboard bearings. The new cranks force you to use the factory spider - one piece forged. :(

Have you tested it?

Congratulations. Sweet set up.
Did you get a chance to test it today? Awfully windy out there at some points.

Tested at Sycamore on Saturday - flawless. Today I geared down for a long ride. Yes indeed windy but all the dust was blown away long ago.
