    Nashbar SS kit?

    Has anyone tried these? I have an old IronHorse Warrior Disc I want to convert over to SS. I probably won't ride this offroad much, and if I do it will be smooth trails. I am also planning on doing a rigid fork swap on the old beast eventually.

    I was just wanting to know if the Nashbar kit would hold up to a little abuse. I already have an old Shimano crankset stripped down to one cog and now its time to do the rear.

    I used to ride to Win ... Now I ride to Grin

    While my guitar gently weeps, my bike sits there mocking me

    I have used that one also. It works but the cogs are really thin. Something to think about if your worried about your hub. Also performance sells the same kit with different cog selection. I think they come with a 18,19,20 cogs.

    Shimano has the tensioner for $25. If I have enough spacers here I may just gut the cassette I have and try that.

    Probably no problem if you are only riding smooth trails but it is possible to collapse or crack a normal cassette cog on a single speed. I'm not that strong but did it when I first started riding single speed.
