    Best quality lightweight SS adaptor kit

    I have a 29er Hope Hoop designed for a typical cassette. Want to convert it to SS using a 16 tooth sprocket and spacers (but don't need the tensioner).

    Any advice on a good quality, lightweight adaptor set i.e. sprocket and spacers (and lock nut?)

    Without a scale I'd say old nylon cassette spacers might be lighter than Chris King spacers. Locknut weights are going to be within a gram or two of each other (SRAM, Shimano) but King makes an 8 gram Ti (I have one for the SS I'm riding) and a 5 gram aluminum lockring When it comes to sprockets, there's aluminum cogs out there, but I would rather have a durable cog so I run Surley single speed cogs. HomeBrewed has aluminum cogs if you get an order in.
    Authorities speculate that speed may have been a factor. They are also holding gravity and inertia for questioning.

    I like my Surly spacer set. Comes with good instructions and a lockring. Not necessarily cheap though, but quality product.
