    can any CX bike be turned into a SS with just a wheelset switch or is there a lot more to it than that?

    If it doesn't have adjustable drop outs, you will also need a chain tensioner

    You don't even need to switch the wheels. A conversion kit and a chain tensioner is all you'd need. I use a Surly spacer kit and a Surly singleator on my SSCX and it works well. The frame is a typical geared CX frame and the hub is an Ultegra 6800 (11 speed).

    Finally finished it. it's been 95% complete for more than a month, the weather was unbelievably perfect today, so i finished it and took it for a test ride. a bit over 27 miles mixed surfaces, found some new trails.

    it's a 61cm Civilian Le Roi Le Veut 4130 frame with sliders and a carbon fork. what a blast! hodge podge build. mountain BB7's, Ultegra cranks, Amer. Classic MTB wheelset, 40c Nano F/35c Conti. X-King R, Ergon saddle, 46mm Cowbell bars (for now), Cane Creek levers, Surly cog, 39:17. 23 lbs with nothin fancy, yet.

    I think i'll end up with a little taller gear, but i will be spending a decent amount of time on single track so I want to be able to climb. wretched color, but i can change that down the road if i decide to keep this frame. the tire clearance is lousy, otherwise its great.

    and now for the pics.

    Really loving this ride...liked the steamroller but it was just a bit too big and the tires a bit too small.

    Vassago Fisticuff: Squeezing a Vee Rubber V10 29x2.1 in the back with the wheel all the way back in the dropouts.

    Today I got a lesson in just how rocky a gravel road in AZ can be...this power line service road had more embedded rocks than young jeezy's grill, topped off with a 800 foot switchback descent that would have challenged an enduro bike and was utterly painful on the Fisticuff. Not even worth it for the scenery.

    would you be willing to post some close up pictures of the rear drop outs? My Googling returns nothing.

    EDIT: Nevermind. I Googled a little harder.

    Just for reference the rear drop out is the same as a regular crux. Only difference is it is not drilled for a hanger. I took a spare I had from one of my other bikes and it fits perfectly. Just no holes to secure it.

    Not at all. thought about using some extra di2 parts and adding a rear xt derailleur, only problem is no provisions for cables so I would have to drill some hole

    Etap it is I guess

    Forced to ride ss now see the light

    Rode my foundry Auger in this year's DK200 . 6 miles in Kansas mud shears off my derailleur and so (without much thought) I break my chain and seal my fate with 50x24 gearing for the rest of the ride. I got lucky and it worked and am now transfigured!

    Steamroller + centerpull brakes = half-decent SSCX. I have a fingers worth of clearance with 33mm tires front and rear.

    Nice to see another black roller taking to the gravel...

    Got the Fisticuff back together with fresh TRP levers and a Conti Speedride 42c out back
