    My singlespeed

    Hi, This is my converted Kona. I have already post it but that was at the old forum. The setup is 32:18 without chain tensioner (but i have it just in case). Rear hub is Surly "new" hub and the bike is great

    My Cindercone (same year same paint) is soon to join the SS ranks. Really helps to know I can run a 32x18 without a tensioner. Did you find any other ratios that worked? I had my eye more on 32x16.


    Thanks

    Well i didn`t experiment that much with gear ratios, but i have Surly rear hub and perfect chainline..i think that`s the key and yes, buy a new chain it helps a lot. I have surly chain tensioner and its great so i don`t know why some riders don`t like it....
    If you need some tips just ask..
