MTB convert to SS - Hub Question

556 Views 2 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  GrampBredo
I have an old mountain bike which I am converting into a single speed. When I removed the cassette from the rear wheel hub, the hub is wide and will not accept aftermarket spacers or cogs.

I was just going to replace the wheel sets, along with the crankset, and added the ss conversion kit. But I wanted to know if I can do anything about the unusual sized hub I have.

Did anyone else ever have this problem?

maybe use one of the cogs from the cassette you took off and get some custom spacers made with the correct inside diameter?
Good idea, and you can use the spacers from said cassette and 1-2 others.
