Call me crazy, but I am on the verge of buying a classic cruiser that happens to be built with vertical drops. Given that it's a classic cruiser, I would love to set it up as a singlespeed. But, then, that got me thinking -- how cool would it be to set up with a 3 speed or similar internal hub.

Is there anything out there that can help with chain tension, that is not a chain tensioner/derailleur set up. I'd love to keep it clean.

Let me know ye ole scholars of singlespeed!

Phil Wood Eccentric Bottom Bracket or Excentriker BB. Forward components is not around any longer, but you could also try to seek out one of these.

These are eccentric bbs for normal bb shells. They work marginally well and with the use of magic gear calculator and a half link, should get you there.
