for those of you guys that have a rig for this, do you use specific ss wheelsets or do you use a cassette wheelset with stacked spacers and cogs? If you do the stacked spacers, did you have to redish the wheel?

I use cassette wheels on all my bikes just so I have more options. The last bike I had a single speed specific wheel on managed to get the rear triangle tweaked and screwed up the chainline.
You won't need to redish.

Oh yeah, avoid the cheap stamped cogs also, they tear up your freehub body. Spend the a couple extra bucks and get the Surly cogs.

cool thanks.. just the answer i was looking for. I was worried I would have to redish.

i use a fantom cross uno, so the spacing is 120 and the wheels are track specific. Therefore, I almost have to use SS specific wheels and are neutrally dished
