Thinking about changing my commuting hardtail to singlespeed. It's not convenient to give the bike a full wash after getting home each night and the winter grime is playing havoc with the drivetrain etc so I'm thinking about singlespeed for simplicity.
Are these converter kits any use or is it better to go with a proper singlespeed hub? I would like to option to stick a cassette back on in the future if I needed it hence why the converter kit looks useful.
It's going on a Specialized Hardrock so I assume a tensioner is also a must?
I've got a Truvativ Isoflow crank and I was just planning on removing the inner and outer rings and running it on the middle ring.
Anything else to consider?
