    1st SS help

    I have decided to give it a try. I have a Kona Explosif that I want to convert and need some suggestions. 1st I plan on using my current wheels which have a XT rear hub, what rear cog spacers are a good deal and work well? My crank is a 175mm XT 22 32 42, what chain ring do you guys like? Is 180mm a big difference? I plan on starting with 32-18 and getting a 16 later. Lastly, what is the best tensioner? Thanks.

    Any rear spacers will do.

    Chainring: any ring that isn't ramped is a good place to start. Spot has served me well lately.

    Keep your 175mm cranks, no need to spend this extra money.

    Tensioner: I'll let someone else answer.
