If you're fast enough and have the connections, people will give you shit to race a bike. A bunch of talented, dedicated & lucky people even make a living at it, the PRO's. Other folks have raffles, fundraise on a blog, or bake sales to help finance a long season of racin' or chasing a lofty goal. Lots of creative thinkers out there, doing what it takes to chase the dream. Well, I think I found my niche. Combine lasers and a small need of cogs for like minded morons and I might have an actual idea. Full range from 16t to 20t. Type 304 Stainless, laser cut, etched tooth count. 6bolt disc rotor mounting, no splines, no threading. I need to mount up and test the 16, these were just cut today. Cogs in the pic still need to have the teeth beveled & a little bit of clean up, working on a simple fixture for that, should be rolliing by end of the week. But that's pretty much it, I'm thinking $25ish ea, depends on overall qty I guess, snailmail delivery included. If this pans out, look out NUE!

Nice! You could be sitting on a wee little pot of fixie gold there. I'd gladly test an 18t for ya.

Take this one step further and have some kind of logo for phrase etched on the ring. Create the tomi-mcmillar brand.

Also, conduct a lot of testing before you start to take orders. The last thing you want to do is get sued for having some kind of crazy defect and find that you fabricated this cog during work hours with work equipment and have your employer get sued and you loose your job. Think out all scenarios before you take any money.

I'd like mine to come with a hit of cologne too please (if your attorneys permit).
