It does my heart good to see Homebrewed Components' ad up there at the top of mtbr's SS forum. Thanks for steppin' up Dan, and I hope you get lots o' biz outta your advertising investment. Looks sharp.

You support us, we'll support you. Proud to call myself one of your customers.

I'm a non-paid/non-compensated shill. ISAR makes some quality stuff. Still need to put in another order from that dood.

Agreed. I'm eagerly awaiting a slew of HBC stuff...I'm sure it will be as nice as you all say.

A visual reference & link for those such as myself sporting adblock. Hell, I might even consider looking at a few ads from time to time that didn't redirect me to Taipei.

Support the local.

cool stuff here

It is awesome to see his banner up, I'm glad to see him doing well.
I'm proud to support a small company such as his, especially when he is so passionate about the sport and has such great interaction with us on here.

Why doesn't their website work? Too many hits from their ad? I've truly been looking for a chainring source, but I can't see what they have to offer. The pics are x'ed out and the links don't work.

What if ISAR started to venture out. . . ?

I know he makes what he makes and doesn't want to change that, but I think he could get a pretty happenin' bussiness going (not that he doesn't already) if he started making other parts in the future. I'm talking small parts here, simple stuff, no moving parts, no threads, etc. Stuff like disc mount fixed cogs, cassette spacers and spacer kits, top cap for your stem, and the like. All in his awesome color schemes. I have no knowledge of what he goes through to make each part, but I imagine the 3 parts I mentioned would be fairly easy to make, as compared to, say, a mechanical disc brake lever or seatpost clamp. I hate to say this in a thread dedicated to ISAR, but I ride Salsa chain rings and Surly cogs right now :thumbsup: I will probably buy from him when I need something new, but I would definitely buy a fixed cog and top cap if he made them. I hear top cap bling is where it's at :lol: I just thought I'd throw this thought out here. I actually lost sleep last night thinking of cool things he could do :lol: I know I'd make some other stuff if I had the ability. Anyways "+1" if you think he should consider or "-1" if your reaction to this was "no way keep things how they are"

a less industrial looking disc mounted cog is a good idea. then venture out on simple tools like wrenches for bolt on hubs, tire wrenches, etc.. of course with a bottle opener on the opposite side.

I'll be making a purchase soon from HBC, I'm looking forward to seeing some of their parts. I've heard nothing but good things.

you guys are awesome! If it wasn't for MTBR (both members and employees), i wouldn't be in business, so I'm really glad i finally had some decent months so i can contribute more than just my worthless 2 cents. I'm so glad to be part of such a cool community. :)
I just wish i could pack me and my bike in some of the flat rate envelopes so i can ride in as many cool places as my parts go. I have to admit, i get pretty jealous sometimes.

Now hopefully it stays busy so i can afford to keep it up there :D
