    schwinn moab as singlespeed?

    Anyone riding an 18.5in. Moab as a singlespeed? How does it work? Is there a magic ratio or do you have to have a tensioner? What's the rear tire clearance on it? Thanks- my bro has one and he wants to make it a ss.

    My friend has one set up ss. He has to use a tensioner with 32/18 and 32/16; even with a half-link. He runs a Tioga 2.1 DH in the back with room to spare, so you could get just about any 2.3 in there easy.
