    Question on SS conversion kits

    Hi All, I have a 2015 Giant Revel 29er, it's Giant's entry level MTB, I've since upgraded to a FS bike and now use this as my daily rider. I got rid of the cheap suspension fork and put on a rigid fork about 6 months ago. Really liking the rigid and now want to try SS because of the simplicity of it. The bike is ridden street, light single track, gravel road etc. My question is, is something like the DMR conversion kit a good choice? I believe I read that the thin cogs eat freehubs and it looks like that's what comes with it ?? I don't want to spend a whole lot on this bike but I would like something with durable parts as this bike does see a lot of use. I've done a lot of reading on the subject but wanted to give you all in the know the type of bike I have on the use it gets and get your thoughts.
    With that said I'm really enjoying the rigid ride and could see the FS bike going up for sale for a dedicated Rigid/SS .
    Thanks for any suggestions on a conversion.

    If you're looking for a good ss kit, get the fouriers one, it maybe more pricey (i paid $40 for mine) but its worth it, i had mine for almost a year and you just got too get loctite or any other thread locker for the bolts on it

    Go with one of the better tenionsers. I like DMR and have heard good things about Soul and Paul versions. I had a couple of the other cheaper ones and did not care for them. Chains skipped.
