So i have a used Trek 4100 sitting around that i am having a hard time selling. i have a geared bike already so i figured, why not make the trek into a ss and try out the ss thing. plus itd give me a project that i think i could do on a budget.
i dont need anything fancy, just want to get it to single speed.
so currently it has a 7speed megarange rear freewheel. i dont want to redish and respace my current rear wheel (limited budget) so i saw the post on how the poster (forgot his name) converted multispeed freewheels into single speeds using the lockring from a hyperglide and the cog from a uniglide and used spacers to achieve proper chainline.
so now this becomes like a freehub ss conversion right? just get a ss crank (my chain rings are spot welded ) and then space the freewheel accordingly to get a good chainline along with a tensioner, ditch the shifters and derailleurs and im set ?
