I was thinking of maybe building a 'single' speed.
However I would like to have a different gear for off road than on the road, so I was wondering if the Single speed tension adjusters on the market will take up the slack from a less than 10 tooth difference on the chain set.
I am thinking that 30 - 18 off road and 38 - 18 for the road would be cool, front mech only.
If not then I have some ideas how to make my own, but it would be nice to know if it is an original idea also!
