hi my friend has done this to his chucker and he used the stock chainring, removed the outer ring and brought a hope hub with a dmr ss kit, it runs smooth and you dont need to spend alot aswell, if you buy the hub from chainreaction flood sale you can get a spin doctor for £20, or you could just buy a halo DJD hub thats on for £45

It'll cost a load to get it laced up, whereas tensioners/ss conversions are relatively cheap, depends if you want it as a fix kinda thing or really want to do it properly spending more cash.

do you know how they replace the old gears?
because it looks like complex taking everything off etc Smile

ill get just one of the tensioners tbh i think Smile

To replace gears, you take off shifters, take off a chainring, take off front and rear mechs, and cables attached. Then you take off the cassette, put the conversion kit on where cassette was. Get correct chain length, with the tensioner on, adjust tensioner. That's the overall outline.
