    which conversion kit is the best?

    looking to turn my rockhopper into a single speed. All I need are single chainring bolts, spacers and cog. I saw this http://www.performancebike.com/webap...ductId=1031512 which has individual spacers and 3 cogs but an iffy tensioner. then there are these http://www.pricepoint.com/detail.htm...8&style_id=075 SETST7 and http://www.pricepoint.com/detail.htm...7&style_id=065 SETSC7 tensioner looks better but there are only 2 spacers so my chainline may be crooked. each about the same price. then there are these bolts http://www.pricepoint.com/detail.htm...4&style_id=080 SETSC7 which look fine. Im open to other suggestions but I dont wanna spend over $50 on the whole project.

    Get the Sette, spring loaded tensioners are trash. I have the DMR tensioner and it works great.

    The Sette is spring loaded. In fact, it is identical to the Forte.

    I have been using the Forte kit for 2-3 years, even through winter, with no problems. Just make sure you have that chain short as can be. Oh, and instead of getting the chainring bolts, get a bashguard. A BBG bashguard is only $12 and will let you use your existing bolts, protect the ring/chain and helps keep grease off your leg.
