Got busy on the weekend and this is the result. No more noisy half-arse ghetto tensioner. Cut the dropouts out of a specialized fatboy BMX frame I had in the shed.

Awesome!

You might want to change the axel on your hub to a bolt up. It ain't nice when the wheel moves in and the chain drops :cry:

Sweet thanks. I had actually been wondering about that happening. I have some spare axles so will swap it over asap. Next mod is converting it to discs front and rear. Already have the disc hubs fitted just need to buy some new hydros for my other bike so I can pinch the hayes of that

Quick question. Whats the go with running rear disc with horizontal d/o? obviously as the wheel moves back/fwd the disc will move out of the calliper reducing the pad contact area. Is the best idea to set the chain length so you have the disc in the optimum position?

Sounds good.

How did you manage to line up the rear disc mounts?

Beat me to it :D

It could work your way, it would be a little bit of a pain to jigg around with it and such.
I've seen slotted disc mounts. So the holes are lengthened so the caliper can move freely to get the perfect line-up.

Something like this =}

they are from the original dropouts. still in the same place as from the factory. may have to change them so they are adjustable horizontally to adjust the caliper as i adjust the wheel

Just a couple of questions;
Has anyone actually bought one from their website?
How does it do for different chain spacing, is the roller on a slide?...

Thanks singlespeeders!


Further to this and the help already given - placed an order - Rennen e-mailed today and advised that there's a bit of a backorder and asked if I wanted to go ahead. I asked them to check fitment - all in all they've been bloody helpful and I would recommend dealing with them to all and sundry. Chur.

I had a wheel like that which I was going to run as singlespeed... If you get a hammer, a chainwhip and a flat head screwdriver you can take off the really thin lockring. (It may take oil and time). Then with the odd way those freehubs work you don't need as many spacers...Nick spacers from a wheel at the tip e.t.c. they are quite common on lower end bikes. As I say i think you have the same sort of wheel. If you post a pic of the wheel out of the bike I'll let you know. By the way love the pedals :)
