Just wanted some quick advice really.
Inspired by recent threads and also my old roadbike I am keen to convert my Soul to SS.
I've been having a read around but cant quite work out the best way to do it. Its currently a 3x9 with XT crankset/rear/front derailleurs.
Was thinking about going for 34 x 17 setup- it will be for local riding around Bristol. I can get a superstar cog and spacers for the rear but what is the best thing to do at the front and with a chain tensioner? Should I just try and keep my current crank and middle ring (I think a 32)- where do you put bashguards and chain devices? What it the best tensioner to use?
Thanks for the advice
