Hi all, I have a 2007 Redline Flight 29er that is currently all stock. I want to do a dinglespeed conversion on it, but I'm not sure where to buy cogs and chainrings. I've called my LBS, they have limited selection and cogs that are $40 which seems WAY too high. Nashbar and Performance don't seem to list them on their web sites either. I just looked on Jenson's web site and they seem to have quite the selection of cogs and chainrings. Some are cheap, some are not. Is there that big of a difference between a $3 cog and a $30 cog?
What bolt kit would I need for a double chainring conversion? Do I just get a triple ring bolt kit and trim the bolts down or do they make a specific one for a double?
Also, can you guys tell me the specifics of what I need for my bike? Do I need threaded cogs or the other style? What is the BCD of the Redline cranks?
Finally, what tools should I need for the conversion? I'm thinking a chain whip, cassette wrench (what style?), and basic hand tools (have that way covered).
