problem with single speed drivetrain
So I have an MTB converted to single speed with a pyramid tensioner, surly cog and I've tried two different cranks. The problem has been the same each time.
As I put pressure on the pedals to accelerate the drive train skips and makes a "KLUNK KLUNK!" I can't figure out what it could be. I figured maybe the chainline was off so I got a narrower bottom bracket. The chain line seems to be alright and the chain isn't too slack or too tight. What do you guys think is doing this?
Oh, I'm also going to post this to bike mechanics too.
