    Cdale single speeds

    I have a 2007 F29 Caffeine that I am either going to upgrade the drivetrain or sell. To keep costs down I am now thinking SS. I have owned several (Voodoo, Rig, XXIX, & Karate Monkey) & love the platform. I am sure they are out there, anyone convert a Cdale to SS? Any unforeseen issues? Pics please... thanks! Also, I have a set of Stan's Crests on order, anyone go SS on these?

    I had an old Delta V that I converted to a SS, but couldn't ride it for more than 2 hrs. because my back was killing me....so I converted my Rush to a SS and the only issue I had was to find a good chain tensioner.
    Installed a Shimano Alfine (I believe that's what it is called) all other parts came from my spare parts bin ;-)
    The Lefty is a true Franken Lefty on this bike:
    2007 Lefty Max Upper, 2009 Lefty DLR2 lowers and a 2011 pbr 100 cartridge.
    Mendon shimmed the chassis for me and this thing is buttery smooth now. lol
    I can post some pics tomorrow....too lazy to go to the garage now... ;-)
