Gusset Single Speed Conversion Kit

Go singlespeed the easy way with this kit from Gusset! Why bother with expensive, dedicated singlespeed hubs? With this kit you can use any standard Shimano 8/9 speed compatible freehub.

Simply slide on cog, sandwich between the two spacers and tighten it down with the lockring. The spacers position can be reversed to adjust the chainline.

Kit includes 16 and 18 tooth cogs, 14 and 19mm spacers, and a lockring.

I have used this kit to build quite a few SS bikes for people and they always turn out great. The spacers are two different widths so it makes getting a good chain line a snap. The kit comes with two size cogs, BONUS! So getting the gearing right just got easier. If you are looking for a quick, easy conversion that fits the budget, this is it. best bang for the buck! No need to spend more, unless you're doing something weird.

This kit is visually appealing and a good deal, but it's not quite there. The spacers in any configuration puzzlingly do not provide a proper straight chainline for modern bikes. Set up with a 1x XT M8000 crank/chainring, the chainline is about 5mm too inboard to be perfectly straight. To add insult to injury, the included cogs are kind of cheesy, and are too thin for use on aluminum freehub bodies, they gouge the material way too easily.

However, if you use a Surly SS cog with this kit in the dished outboard position, you will get a proper straight chainline. Also, you won't eat up your alloy freehub body.

The advantage of the tall spacers is they add extra support to the cog and are more aesthetically pleasing than regular spacers. However, if you're using a super stiff Stainless Steel cog like a Surly, it's probably not needed. Go with the Surly cog and Singlespeed spacer kit, it's worth the cash.

        Comments about Gusset Single Speed Conversion Kit:

        Purchased this to switch my 18 yr/old Cannondale F600 to a SS. It was a very easy project and actually a lot of fun. The conversion was simple and placing the spacers properly helped to ensure a straight chain line. The thing to be aware of is compatibility between the chain, rear cog, front chain ring and chain tensioner. I will need to make a few changes to get everything dialed in (i.e. changing the 18t cog that was included to a Shimano cog so that it will work better with the shimano chain tensioner that I'm using).

            You'll need the freewheel installer/remover tool, but to remove the old cassettes you can probably just hold them with channel locks instead of buying that special cassette holding tool.

            i used this product beyond the time i expected it to last. it is a great way to avoid shelling out the dough for a new hub and freewheel. the chainline may not be perfect in all instances but it was for me and with the varying spacer widths it should be close.
