OK OK I will admit it. I have got the what bike to buy blues. Do I buy an SS specific or convert a standard hardtail frame?? I thought I wanted to buy a Surly (see my earlier sizing question thread) or maybe a Unit or On One or Solo One but recently I have been checking the US ebay listings for complete bikes and also for frames and have come across quite a few KHS Alite 4000's and a couple of Homegrowns (2001Limited with the Enlightened steel frame) and am thinking that these may be a cheaper option.
My real question is..............has anyone here had any luck converting either of these frames without the need for a tensioner and if so what gear ratio were you able to use??
Please help me as I am new to this (except for lurking and drooling over all of your bikes) and I am getting more and more confused.
