Mmmmmm...never seen gold ones.
Boone makes (or used to) very fancy Ti cogs....big bucks though.
I'd go Surly or Chris King

err yea !!
but i cant see any gold ones on there.
and the surly cnc ones on there are not the ones i was thinking off.
i have seen some really fancy coloured ones with cool patterns in them, i dont doubt they are expensive.
and im sure there are more places than e-bay to buy ss cogs.
no need to be :?

and cheers charliethebikemonger seems to have coloured ones.

I got Surly ss kit from Charlie too, also got some good advice from them before buying the kit :D

E-mail them and ask if they can get them.

Boone chainrings are back in production
http://www.booneti.com/cr/images/chainringpage1_01.jpg
But I don't know about the cogs....email them and see I guess.
Just sold some Eno cranks to Nol that had a Boone ring and I have to say the quality is stunning.....ultimate bike jewellery 8)
