    You need spacers a single speed cog and a chain tensioner, it is that easy. You can even use the same chain and front chain ring you have now.

    Sorry when I meant chain tensioner I meant one that attaches to your Rear Derail. Hanger like this one. http://www.pricepoint.com/detail/170...-Tensioner.htm This will help turn your bike into a single speed, there are lots of different options for this, just look around

    Check out Sheldon's FAQ page on this forum. That is where I got all the information I needed.
