The Gears I'll Be Turning

Homebrewed Components made these awesome gears for my Singular Cycles Gryphon. The company is a one man operation out of SoCal and is well known amongst single speeders for his myriad options for diferent crank BCD's and cog configurations in aluminum or titanium.

Shown here are the White Industries compatible chain wheel in a 36T count and the standard cassette based cog in a 17T count, both in a brilliant emerald green anodized finish. 

Being that Homebrewed is a one man deal, these took awhile to get. I ordered them in mid June, and got them July 30th, but the owner of Homebrewed, Daniel Wilcox, says that he's streamlined his operation a bit, and lead times are coming down some. At any rate, the fit and finish of these cogs is top notch. I am impressed.

I will be rocking these gears at the Good Life Gravel Adventure/Gravel World Championships later in August. Which reminds me......I'd better get a room arranged for!
