    Help On Ss Conversion

    ok...can someone(s) assist on a conversion please? Does this sound reasonable:

    -Using Middle existing chainring up front and 18t chainring in back with spacer kit? Bike will be used for climbing.

    -How does spacer kit get mounted?

    -Do I order a SS specific chain and then use a tensioner (Not horizontal drops on this frame)

    -Quick release on rear wheel ok or bolt on?


    Any info much appreciated. Thanks

    It will climb fine with middle ring and 18T.

    Spacers just slide on. Make sure chain line is straight.

    No SS specific chain needed--just use your current one.

    QR is ok.

    Look at the SS FAQ in the upper right hand corner.
