    Full Suspension SS 29er

    I thought that I should post this in case others are considering it.

    I have a Voodoo Canzo 29er that I converted to a single speed via a Paul Melvin tensioiner.

    http://www.paulcomp.com/melvin.html

    It works great with zero issues and I have been logging quite a few miles.

    There are 2 caveats in my opinion.

    1. It works best when the lower pulley is at least in line with the top pulley versus behind it. This creates a little more spring tension and just seems to work best.

    2. I am running a 19t cog and it's tight. I don't think that you could run anything larger than a 20t.

    Here's a really crummy pic from my cell phone yesterday morning.
