yeah, I dunno.

more and more often this thing
feels like it's run its course...

I still have some cogs on the shelf,
still have plenty of rings.  So if'n
you're looking for something,
probably best if you drop me
line first before hitting that
order button.

Good chance I can help you out,
but I might also be out of a particular
tooth count, so it might be a wait....

So drop me a line.


currently out of 16's btw.

Been a while...

Yet again, been super blog slacking.
Busy over the last year-ish, moving up the chain,
now VP of my Trout Unlimited Chapter.


Did buy a new skinny tired machine this summer,
and broke the wiz bang carpet fibre 29er frame.
So it goes.

Just a couple recent pics, so you know I'm still alive,
and yep, still making cogs, drop me a line if'n you need
one, or have any questions..

I've gotten a few queries.

"You still makin' Cogs?"

yep, TomiCOGs are still
available, rings in all sizes
also, all for 8speed chains,
9's are tight, don't expect these
thangs to work w/ 10 or 11.

that said, been getting more
involved with TU, working
on a casting instructor cert.
should be a fun journey..

went to Maine for the first time,
beautiful place.

the latest latest.

man, how 'boout them Holidaze? good times 'eh? treated me well, lot's of to and fro, and thanks for the continued interest in the cogs and rings, ya'll kept me hoppin'. Saw some new sights, reacquainted some old with the new-ish. Very generous consolidated gifting enabled me to pick up a DSLR, lots to learn, gonna be fun for sure. Looks like I'll be at Westminster, figuring to have a selection of cogs and some rings, hope to have some of the roadie/cross sizes along. Anyway, enough with the marketing... Finally visited Valley Forge, finally.
It snowed in WV, finally.
Spent New Years in town, walking to and from is awesome.
Went back to Wv for a bluebird Saturday.
Found some quiet on greybird Sunday.
The Falls of Blackwater, I need to fish that.

It was good.

Gettin' some press...

Hey All,

Yep, still here, just being quiet, livin' life, pursuing other things not bike related. Little buddy Dicky pointed me to some press, looks like the samples made it the Rag ok, thanks for the write up Karl.

Do have plenty of rings also, all sorts of sizes if you're looking for something that takes a long time to wear out.

Other pursuits, if'n you're interested...well, the skiing was pretty lame this year with an abnormally warm winter....guess we were due after the last few epics. And with the warmth and the new digs I've finally settled into, been fishin' a good bit more than peddlin', but we'll find that balance soon enough with spring in the air and trails to be swooped upon.
