    serious about converting this time

    i thought about it and now im serious, i want to go ss. i need help though

    for the front i want a bash guard, but dont have those fancy mounts, what do i need to mount the e thirteen on my bike?

    for the rear i want to use my stock hub, what do i need to do about spacers?

    do i need a tensioner? its a hardtail.

    also can someone point me in the right direction for flip flop hubs? i have rim brakes

    do i need a new freewheel also?

    if i do what thickness for the sprockets and chain?

    sorry for all the questions, the only thing thats holding me back is i dont know what i need

    I just got a ss conversion kit, a tensioner, and happily trashed my derailleurs/shifters with joy. Just borrow a friend ss and go for some rides before you commit to it. I do not think you have to take this as a very serious matter...riding is about having fun either geared or ss.

    you can buy full conversion kits online and the bashguard just replaces the big ring up front held on by the chainring bolts

    First, read the FAQ link at the upper right of the page.
    http://www.mtbr.com/faq/ssfaq.shtml

    You have a lot of questions here, some are redundant...

    If you're going to use your current hub with a cog and spacers, you don't need a new freewheel or a flip flop hub.

    You'll probably need a tensioner unless you want to play around with finding your magic gear.

    SS stuff is generally compatible with a 3/32" chain unless it specifically says it's for a 1/8" chain.

    Well... it's an 8/9 speed hub. Just buy a kit and that will be all yo need. Performance Bike $25.00 or so. You don't need anything else, provided you have some tools. One other thing, try researching a bit there is a great deal of information out there. Sheldon brown's web site is great, may he rest in peace.

    also, the e13 will just bolt on assuming you buy the right mm and bolt pattern

    The adjustability of the Rennen spacer kit is nice for getting chainline exactly right. You will still need a cog and a tensioner.

    The Gusset kit will probably work fine. You still need a tensioner.

    Those E-13 bashguards will fit, if your cranks are 4 bolt.
