I have a giant xtc that I am interested in converting to a single speed. I got to wondering if it is possible to set the rear up as a single speed with a tensioner but still use a 3 speed crankset in order to have some adjustment if need be. I love hills but on a single speed I may find some of the hills I have been riding would need smaller gear ratio than what I would like on the flatter parts of the same trails. Has anyone had any success with this or does that screw up the drivetrain too much with that much adjustment to the front available. Just wondering I'm a newb in the singlespeed world. If you have any suggestions I'd love to hear them.
