I have a 90's Cannondale Killer V 21 spd mountain bike. It has everything working on it, it just doesn't have any wheels, or rear sprocket.
I'm looking to convert it to a single speed, and I'm wondering what the easiest, most economical way of doing it is?
From what I've read so far, all I need is a wheelset (obviously), single speed conversion kit (cog, spacers, chain tensioner), and of course a single speed chain.
I have a few questions though...
1. Is it recommended that I purchase a SS crankset, or can I just use the one I have, and take off the sprockets I'm not using?
2. Do most standard wheelsets come with freewheels built on the hub, or should I buy a freewheeling cog?
3. Is there a reasonably priced single speed wheelset on the market that would work with a 21 spd mountain bike frame? I was planning on buying this wheelset: http://www.pricepoint.com/detail/120...-Lite-Rims.htm , I was just wondering if I could kill two birds with one stone, and get a wheelset thats already set up for SS.
Thank you very much
