    Why only hardtail?

    Ok, so I'm new to Mt Biking but I realized right away that I'd have more fun with only one gear. Since I only had one bike I decided to go ahead and single speed it. It's a Specialized Enduro (03 I think) anyways, it's fully suspended and I've been told already that you should "Only" single speed hardtails.......WTF? I like it just the way it is, did I break some sort of single speeding rule or something?

    I rocked this 3" travel SS for a few months but the frame is just a tad to short so I need to get rid of it to make room in the garage for my new custom SS

    It has a pivot around the BB so chain length doesn't change at any point through the travel

    That's a sweet setup. Mine requires a tensioner however.

    with a tensioner that can take up alot of slack (Paul Melvin, Rohloff)you can set up pretty much any Full Squish as a SS
