    How about this Sun-Rhynolite 510 set or Deore XT set?

    After reading more on SS conversions and stripping the Fisher, I think the cassette hubs will be an advantage to me. Are these wheelsets...

    Thanks....I read about horizontal dropouts on SS roadies but didn't put 2 and 2 together. And while I looked at 200+ pages of fixie photo's I noticed some MB's had tensioners and others didn't.
    ...
  21. Why are chain tensioners required on a MB SS?

    Won't a BMX cog fit on the wheel?
