    Together again! I converted my Diamondback commuter bike to singlespeed again!

    Why? Because I can't quit single speed.

    This bike came stock 20 speed, I converted to to 1 speed, then 2 speed, now 1 speed again! It is my rain bike / ice bike.

    After removing all the multi speed parts I just try my best to get a perfect chain lined up between the front sprocket and rear sprocket with some hub spacers, and choose a gear combination that allows me to ride without a chain tensioner (52x19 for me).

    I must replace the bike chain every few hundred miles because it wears/stretches too much to stay on securely without a chain tensioner.
