    Single Speed Mojo?

    Is this a useless idea or not?

    Nope. Won't work. SS chain tensioners come in black only, and are therefore incompatible with the standard Mojo linkage colors. Now, if you could get someone to anodize a chaintug in blue or red, you'd be in business!

    The reason I ask is that the Yess ETR/V seems to work well for suspension bikes. I already have a Mojo, might make for a fun SS...

    It'll be slower on most trails, but lighter and quieter.
    Keep the Country country.

    Very cool, in the "I've got 22" rims and low profile tires on my Powerstroke diesel" way.
    Taking it easy for all you sinners.

    Yes. This is a fool's errand. Just because you can do something doesn't mean you should.
    Sometimes you can't have your cake and eat it too.
    Get your regular SS and ride it and enjoy it.
    Do the same with your mojo.

    Don't write it off so fast! My bud knows a guy who works at the Whistler Village Senor Frog's selling jello shots to girls in tube tops. One of those girls mentioned that Lopes had his HD set up SS for his winning A-Line run at Crankworx.

    If you have Lope's legs and only go downhill, it could work great. With that kind of strength, you can push a big gear uphill too!

    My trails are steep up and down so I wouldn't be able to find a gear ratio to work for my terrain / leg combo.
