    9 speed to SS

    What is needed and what has worked best to use a 9 speed hub for a conversion to a SS.
    This will be for a SOMA Juice I am building up next.

    TIA

    Surly makes a nice spacer kit as well. Pick a decent cog and you can use your current lock ring.

    I've had good experience with the Gussett kit. Cheap and strong.

    It looks like the Wheels Manu has a little more versatility with chain angle....the Surly looks a bit more rugged as well

    If you're a cheap skate like me, PVC pipe works well.

    I just got the Surly spacer set, actually comes with a nice lockring. The instructions for chainline are impressive too. You can check it out here.

    The spacer kit from Endless Bike is cool. I ordered mine this week.

    I didn't even notice. One of my buddies has one, so I know what it looks like. Maybe someone could post a picture of theirs.
