Just put on the new (for me) Talas RL I just bought from someone on the board and went for a ride. Well everything was golden but I was having bulls** drivetrain problems because of the new chain I just put on a 1-2 season used cassette and crankset. I dont think the front three gears were the problem as it was skipping like a schoolgirl in the back until I decided to just use the large front cog only, making extra tension. Anyways..long story short..i have diesel legs and good endurance...I'm always embarrasing my riding buddies up hills. I mainly only use gear 2 in front, 4 or five in back.......OR gear 1 in front ...same in rear. So Im getting to the point where i'm really sick and tired of dealing with gears and all the bs! My bike would make a great singlespeed i think..with the Talas fork on a 99 Trek 6000 frame with almost every part upgraded. Light and perfect for good aggressive XC. Basically I have the idea that I can just remove my biggest and smallest front gears leaving the #2 and get a fixed single speed cassette in rear. Maybe I am a newbie...so please educate me on this....whats the cheapest way I can do this
PS. My front crankset and BB is only 1 season old basically...and my chain is brand new and has adjustable links.... Thanks!
