fixing to build my single speed (mtb 29er build) wanting to see if i have overlo....
just curious if i have overlooked anything ...
here is a breakdown of the parts
Soul Cycles Dillinger 29er frame (16", has adjustable EBB http://www.ridesoul.com/dillinger.html
FSA single speed V-drive crank with megaexo BB (175mm, w/ 32t)
Sram PC971 chain w/ powerlink
Avid BB5 160mm disc brake set (w/ cables, housing etc)
wtb rims, w/ formula hubs
single speed conversion kit (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...MEWN:IT&ih=020
) (picked up that kit mostly for the different spacers to get the chainline just right) ...
Rigid CroMo fork
i have the other parts like stem, handlebars, grips, seatpost, saddle, pedals, tires, tubes.
just waiting for everything to get here, the main part of the build i am not sure on yet is the SS conversion kit and the chain, i am not for sure which rear sprocket i will be using yet, and it is possible i may change out from time to time ...so should i use the tensioner that comes with it? or just shorten up the chain and not bother? ...
also on my EBB is there a 'certain' way it should be set (like more forward etc?) or do i just play with the location till it feels about right?
