are they for dh smaller cogs only? Curious what’s max cog t?

Yes I think so. In the "manual" it shows 14T as max and when you purchase from their website you only get the option of 13 T or 14T

bummer. pricey but looks really well executed.

Just received mine in the post, says it’ll work with up to a 17t.


Needed one for mine as the XD SS conversion kit smallest cog is a 16t, tried an old beat GX mech first which lasted one run, then ordered the Rohloff which seemed solid but didn’t have the adjustment needed for my bike, so bit the bullet and went for the SB. Seems solid and very well made, much stronger spring in it compared to the others too.

Single speed XD

Im trying to convert my 2017 Trek Session 8 into a single speed. I have a 36t chain ring and a 16t rear cog. For the chain tensioner im trying to use my sram gx 7 speed derailleur which came on the bike but when i got to pedal it keeps wanting to shift and making a weird noise. I got a longer alignment screw and its aligned properly. I even put in a old piece of cable but it still does that. Can add pictures if wanted.

My guess is that the chain line is off. It needs to be the same as the chainring. A few mm can make a difference. Also make sure you have a cog that is meant for single speed, and not one for shifting. Single speed cogs have higher teeth so the chain is less likely to fall off. A Third thing to to is to adjust the b-screw of the derailleur so that the upper pulley wheel is as close as possible to the cog.

Hi , i'm also thinking to buy the sb1 boner.
On theyr site it says that the chainline is adjustable , but do you think it will be possible to have 2/3 rear cogs and switch beetween them whit an allen key before dropping in?
Ideally i would have 1/2 cogs and a neutral gear
It seems that you can move the tensioner left/right by putting an allen key at the center of the Loose Riders logo, right ?
Can you also post a full photo of the instruction manual ?
thanks

here is the documentation of the g3

You can slide the tensioner inward and outward by loosening the 'clamp for stepless alignment of the sprocket'. But if you switch between sprockets you should also adjust the gap between the upper pulley and the sprocket. I can imagine it would be a bit tedious to do that each ride.

The hole in the logo in the 2019 version is for adjusting the clutch mechanism. This puts friction on the link by which the cage can bounce back an forth.

These bikes were from about 4 years ago, I believe I did run one, just the sad reality being I probably couldn't afford one at the time, the narrow wide did a good job of keeping the chain on anyway
