major product updates:
After just finally getting caught up after the holiday rush and a couple group buys, i took today to tinker with some designs i’ve been working on.
I changed the design of my cogs a bit. My splines are shaped more in the typical fashion, similar to Chris King’s. This is to avoid confusion, as i always get asked if they’re compatible with Shimano type hubs. The spline is still CNC milled, and will be pretty much the same fit. There is extra clearance in some areas to allow for the radius, but not where it will effect fit at all. They will still be just as round. This will take effect on all cogs.
Also, i redesigned my 2 piece cogs. I widened the base a hair, and i now use stainless steel pins to hold the teeth to the aluminum hub. It’s stronger, and the weight difference is only about 4g (mostly from widening the base). It also helps me control quality a little better.
Lastly, I have been playing with engraving the chainrings. It’s a little bit if a hassle, but i’m working on dialing it in. What do you guys think?
