    Woohoo!

    Finally things are warming up, a sign that I should start converting to a singlespeed! Anyway, I've got a 2008 Stumpy HT 29er. It's got a ss dropout, which means that I can convert it. I got a repair kit which should have all the parts I need, but am unsure of specifics so if anyone has a link to a guide or whatever, please post I AM SO PUMPED!

    I read it that it does not suck because it sucks.

    After reading the original post, I realized I had no idea what I was trying to say. Question is, is there anyplace where I can find a guide (specific) to converting the stumpy to ss? I built a road bike, but didnt have to deal with the cassette or chainrings, and those are the only parts I dont know what to do with.
    I'll check out the FAQ.

    Thanks,

    Chris

    with the ss drops in that frame - easy.
    there are pictures and text to help you with the cassette and lockring HERE - also easy.

    good luck.

    for those who ride in wisconsin, how many teeth/what ratios do you use? WORS circuit is what I do, plus nine mile and standing rocks. BTW I would get more than one size for the rear. What do you recommend>
    I also bike out to the trail, so is there some two cog setup or something?
