    '10 RH Comp SS??

    How would I go about setting up my '10 Rh Comp to a SS? I have regular drop outs for a QR. How do you turn it into a SS with a chain tensioner?

    Buy a spacer kit and rear cog. Remove cassette, install spacers and cog. Remove front granny ring and big ring, reinstall middle or a new ss specific middle ring with shorter ss chainring bolts. Shorten chain or preferably get a shiny new chain to go with your new cog and chainring. Install at shortest length you can and then add tensioner. Most of the better tensioners aren't sprung (Rennen Rollenlager, Soulcraft convert, Gusset Bachelor, DMR STS). Remove all shifty bits. Enjoy!

    It's all in what you want to spend, I recently did mine with a cheap spacer kit (ebay), surly rear cog ($25 or so), surly chainring ($30) both from universal cycles, ss chainring bolts (ebay, get steel), kmc 8 speed chain (found a good deal on amazon), and I was using a modified cheap spring tensioner but I just ordered the Rennen Rollenlager the other day ($50 google the name to find). All steel drivetrain should last me a long time, I'm running a 32-18 on my 26" Giant. Also make sure you have a chian whip and lock ring tool for removing the cassette, and look up how to remove your drive side crank arm to get that granny ring off. Any other questions just ask, helping you is much more fun than finishing my homework.

    Would this work for a spacer kit?

    Yep that would work. Just word to the wise most people prefer cogs with a wide base when using them on an alum freehub (which your bike probably has). The one that comes with those spacers would be ok to use for a little but could eventually gouge your free hub.
