Setup as a singlespeed magic gear w/ a 32/20

It's crazy amounts of fun!
How did that work out? I was thinking about do the same thing. I don't like horizontal dropouts, and don't want to deal with an EBB. Since you can't adjust for chain stretch due to wear, does that cause any issues?

It was a little tight at first, the rear axle didn't sit all the way down in the drop out with the bike upsidedown, but after a ride the chain stretched a little and it's been fine. Few rides under it's belt now, and no problems so far. I've got a tensioner just in case it gets too loose, but so far it doesn't seem like i'll have that problem.
