I'm thinking of converting my Trek 520 touring bike to a single speed for commuting. The thing I'm having the biggest logistical issue with in terms of planning it is whether chain tensioning is going to be an issue because of the vertical rear dropouts.
Does anyone have any thoughts or suggestions on this issue?
Also, is it possible to run a single speed setup using standard road skewers (vs. axle bolts)?
Thanks in advance.
