    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?

    Sounds like you have most everything, Devil. Post pics on DR when its done.

    Oh, and know that it is impossible to build a bike without at least one major snag.

    And the EBB, it needs to make the chain tight. Forward or backward is a preference of geometry and comfort.
