    which lockring for ss conversion?

    hey guys. i'm not sure which hyperglide lockring i need to complete an SS conversion. i have a hyperglide (internally threaded) cassette hub with spacers. what type of lockring do i need to keep it together? i notice that hyperglide rings are different for different gears. does it matter which one i use if it's single speed? for example: they have specific lockrings for 6-8 speed cassettes, 6-10, 8-10, et cetera with 11t or 12t. i just need a lockring to secure my spacers on my hub. does it matter which? thanks!!!

    Assuming the last thing on the freehub is a spacer (and not the cog), I can't see how it would matter.

    well, you can always use the lockring with it's proper end cog at the end of the stack of spacers.

    lock ring | cog | spacer | cog placed for straight chainline | spacer | hub
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    this is how i've set up my ss conversions in the past, using the lockring that came off the salvaged cassette i took the cog from.
    i won't deny it i'm a straight ridah
