    Yelli Screamy single speed setup.......

    Very interested in the YS, currently running SS and would like to stay that way for a while. The future does hold a 1x9 setup, though.

    Looking for setup SS advice, running a 32x21. Any specific chains, half links, etc. used?

    Thanks for your help and advice in advance.

    I just bought a screamy and I was thinking about trying some like this for SS:

    ETR/V / bike chain tensioners and other goodies / your friends at yess labs

    I have temporarily fudged mine by using the inner plate of my straitline guide as a tensioner. Its a bit of a faff but works. I couldn't get my rear chain tensioner to work because of the design of the rear drop out. The machining of it stops the tensioner swinging up far enough to put tension on the chain.

    I reckon the best solution (bearing in mind i also think rear chain tensioning devices look ugly) is to get a bb to iscg adapter and then use a blackspire stinger on the front. Avoid the bb blackspire cos it'll be a faff to adjust as the chain stretches.

    I've had no problems using a bb Blackspire Stinger, running 32x19 with a half link.
