    the gusset conversion is lacking IMO because it doesn't let you adjust your chainline. I prefer a dedicated cog like the surly one and a set of spacers to fine tune chainline.

    Make sure that your suspension when cycled doesn't bind the tensioner. That could be trouble other wise the Yess tensioner gets good reviews.

    Finally opt for a multispeed chain vs. the SS specific chain. They are more flexible and forgiving which could be a boon for a FS SS conversion.

    The gusset kit I had allowed two points of "adjustment"...and one of them worked for me. One spacer is bigger than the other.

    So far so good. Just did it a couple of days ago, rode it once. The Sprokets don't work well with the 8 speed chain, but I put sprockets in from my old casette and have hd no problem. Kit came with plenty of spacers, so alinging the chain was extremly easy. That tensioner might also control the chain growth of your single pivot.<br><img src="https://www.performancebike.com/product_images/250/50-6550-NCL-TOP.jpg" /a>
