Singlespeed Kit - Fast conversion to singlespeed!
With a conversion kit for conventional rear hubs with freewheel body, it is possible in a few steps to convert your bike to single speed.
You must first use a chain tool to remove the cassette from the freehub body and then replace the sprocket pack with the single-speed kit and the included spacers. By means of individual spacers of different width, a straight chain line can be found quite simply. Position the spacers so that the chain runs straight from the chainring to the pinion. Once the correct position of the pinion has been found, the single-speed kit can be screwed back onto the freewheel body. If your rear triangle does not have horizontal dropouts, as with singlespeed frames, you would also need to mount a chain tensioner on the derailleur hanger. Since when rearranging a bike with gears and normal dropouts no displacement of the rear wheel is possible, the chain length can be adjusted only by the installation of a suitable chain tensioner. With the conversion to single-speed bike, we also recommend to renew the chain, so as to ensure a long shelf life of the new input drive.
Before buying a single-speed kit, think about which translation you want to drive later. In this decision, of course, can fall back on the experience you have made with your conventional circuit. It's best to check in which gear you get along the best on average. Crucial for this, of course, is your pace and the environment in which you prefer cycling. Is it mountainous or very flat, are you cruising the city rather comfortably or are you on the move?
You will also find individual sprockets in our shop to equip your fixie or single-speed bike for different situations perfectly.
