    Idea! XTC 29 Composite Single Speed?

    Have you guys seen any good Giant XTC 29 composite single speed builtds? I'm about to build one up and I'm wondering what the best chain tensioning device would be. I haven't seen anyone use this frame for a single speed.

    There was a thread with one built up in the SS forums on here. I think any quality chain tensioner that attaches at the RD mount would work fine. I've considered buying an XTC composite frame just for this purpose, so you get to keep us posted

    Because of the shape of the drive side chain stay I don't think that a push up tension device will work. I'm thinking about trying devices meant for full suspension bikes since that will keep the chain out of the way.
