So I recently converted my 2005 XT equipped hardtail to SS. I had to use a tensioner but it's working fine.
I've only ridden it a few times but I already know a) I will ride SS more and b) I want a cleaner look. Maybe eventually I'll build up a dedicated SS with 29er or 650b wheels but, for now, I want to re-use all my old components. So I'm looking for a SS specific frame that will work with my 26" wheels and 1 1/8" steerer tube fork. I know of two:
Voodoo Bokor (my top choice now, since I can convert it to 650b later)
On One Inbred (great price but no sliders...do I need chaintugs?)
