    Rennen makes a nice adjustable spacer kit. I am using it on my Santa Cruz SS.
    The Sette kit that you are looking at, I have the same one and I am using the 18mm spacer and some spacers that I robbed from some old cassetes to get the perfect chain line. I am using that one on my GT SS. I noticed on the Sette kit that I couldn't get the chain line just right even if you flip flop the spacers around (16 &18mm) so that's where the old cassete spacers come into play. So far both set ups have been working good for me.

    Hope that helps.

    The spacer kits with multiple size spacers are a much better choice than the kits with just two large spacers. Those two spacers are designed to match a certain front chainline measurement when used with a certain thickness cog. A variety of smaller spacers allows more adjustment

    Well right now I'm running a bunch of plastic spacers from some old cassettes I had laying around and a SRAM 18t cog out of my old favorite cassette that "exploded" (but that's another story) will that sufice with my 230 lb frame (body) and a SS chain because the chainline is spot on right now or will I eventually ware out the plastic spacers?

    Your spacers should be fine, but I would recommend picking up a cheap ss cog with taller teeth like this. Your LBS should be able to get something similar for a similar price.

    The Surly SS conversion (along with Surly cog) is the nicest kit I have seen by far.

    Looks Good so the longer teeth retain the chain better? I wish they had a 18t........I'd accually get one!

    They do have 18t, you just need to scroll the selection box down
    Chasing bears through the woods drunk with a dull hatchet is strongly not advised

    I agree with JonIrons. I have the Surly kit with a Surly cog as well. Very solid!
