    New Build

    Working on getting this going. The bike sat in my garage for some time. Today I got the bug and started tearing into it. This the first SS I will be building so some tips would be nice. Tomorrow I will be going to the bike shop to buy the parts I need. I already have the conversion kit I want picked out but I am unsure of the size of the sprocket I should use up front. I also read about chain tensoners in some posts. anyone care to explain what it is, why i should get one, and how to use? Hopefully I will have it done tomorrow night and I will post again. Got a ride planned on Saturday (15 miles) would love to take this thing out instead of my AM bike.

    server is busy, not letting me get in. Anyhow looks like I ran into my first problem. I cannot remove the sprockets off the back wheel. They appear to be part of it, maybe I'm doing it wrong or its just a cheap piece of junk. This is a budget build so I may have to wait unless some one has a rear wheel with or with out the single speed conversion on it for sale.
