    New question here. Newbe looking for help

    I have an old Fisher X-Caliber (steel) frame that I have set up as my commuter bike and want to make it into a single speed to lighten it up. I know that there are some conversion kits out there to do this, but my main question is.... do I really need to get a chain tensioner if I have vertical dropouts? Or can I get away with not having one? Thanks.....

    Check out the SS FAQ in the upper right...

    corner of the SS forums page. It's a little hard to notice at first. You will find a ton of great info....it helped me become addicted to SS.

    Welcome and good luck.

    Awesome! Thanks for the help. It's funny, I've been on the DownHill forum forever and never even noticed that area of the page. Thanks again.
