    Flash 29er Carbon Conversion

    I've ordered a cannondale flash carbon and at some point want to convert it to SS.

    I want to check with y'all to see if I've got the order of operations down.

    1) remove shifters/derailleurs/cables
    2) remove chainrings and chain
    3) install bash gaurd (I need to buy this) where the big ring was
    4) install 33/32t chainring (I need to buy this) where the small ring was.
    5) remove cassette, install spacers and 20/19t cog (i need to buy these)
    (planning to attempt magic gear, chainstay length is 44.4cm, calculator says 32x20 or 33x19 will get me there. I'd prefer 33x19)
    6) install new chain
    ...
    7) win?

    If this is the case, it really is not a huge inconvenience to switch. But i need to buy
    1) chainring for inner bcd
    2) cog
    3) chain
    4) spacers

    and maybe remove derailleur hanger?

    What tensions the chain with this setup?

    He said he's going to try magic gear.

    Don't the Flash Carbons have a BB30? Maybe a Beer Components EBB?

    It may not work on the carbon frame, there may be crushing issues.
