converting 9speed cassete rear wheel one speed freewheel
hi all- i have Neuvation Rear Wheel with 9 speed cassette, however i want to convert to single speed freewheel (or one speed cassette?). what are my options? thanks!
you're going to need some more spacers. but you remove the cassette, which is made up of 9 cogs and a bunch of spacers. Then you put some spacers on, throw a cog on, add some more spacers, and top it off with a lockring. Put the cog in line with your chainring and you're golden.

Should be about 15, 20 dollars from just about any shop
In addition, (I guess the frame won't have track or horizontal drop) you will need a chain tensioner and short chainring bolds (if you have double chainring front).
cool, thanks all for the post and the pics. very helpful.
How redneck are you? Because I used PVC pipe from Home Depot for the spacers. A 10' stick costs just under $4.00, and that gives you just enough extra to mess up a couple hundred times cutting the pieces to size. I bought a BMX cog, but you could probably find a way to break up the cassette if you were so inclined. Then just put the lockring from said cassette on top.

Anyway, that's one way to do it.
