VeloSolo Singlespeed Cassette Hub Spacer Kit

Allows road or mountain bike Shimano pattern cassette hubs** to be used with a single cog. Pack of seven includes 1 of 7.5mm, 1 of 6.5mm, 1 of 5.5mm, 2 of 4.5mm and 2 of 2.5mm. Compared to the two wide spacers supplied in basic SS kits, this combination of seven spacers in five different narrow widths allows very precise fine tuning of rear chainline. Works with any SS cog (14t or larger) from the thinest taken from a cassette to the fattest Surly. Use with single, dual, triple cog set-ups etc - this is a very adaptable kit. Simply add cog and lockring.

CNC custom machined in the UK exclusively for VeloSolo from solid lengths of 6082 aluminium alloy - not cut from tube. Superb quality. Non-anodized and can thus be polished in a couple of minutes with Belgom Alu, Autosol, Peek etc (see last pic). Please see this page for sample weights of VS components. Please see FAQ for set-up advice and converting to singlespeed.

Note: kit is designed for virtually all 7/8/9/10 speed hubs and will fit over 99% of hubs out there. Important: very rarely some 10 speed or 11 speed freehubs are wider and an additional 2.5mm spacer may be required which we can supply at minimal extra cost (please contact us for details or request at time of order). Our kit is NOT compatible with certain DURA ACE hubs (7800 etc).

VeloSolo CNC Singlespeed MTB Chainring ANODIZED

As with our road rings the VeloSolo mountain bike chainrings are precision machined from the same heat treated high strength 4.0mm thick 7075-T6 aluminium alloy for extra strength. No offset so reversible without affecting chainline for longer life.

Very stiff and very strong. Teeth are hobbed the old fashioned way for superb finish and performance. Available in tooth counts of 32t, 34t and 36t. Two new larger sizes now in stock in 38t and 42t, perfect for faster road or downhill use. Classic style with machined cut-outs on 34t, 36t and 38t. The 32t is drilled rather than 'slotted'. The 42t has circular 'telephone dial' cut-outs. Minimal lead chamfer and full height teeth with no cut-outs or 'shift pins' give perfect engagement with the chain. Designed for singlespeed mountain bike use; on or off-road.

Available in 4 bolt 104mm BCD and 1/8" or 3/32" thicknesses. Choose 1/8" with matching 1/8" chain for a superb long lasting and strong set-up for typical UK off-road conditions (the 1/8" width has nearly 50% more contact area for driving the chain than the 3/32"). Finished in anodized black or gold. New silver anodized also now available in all options. All with laser engraved logo. Please see this page for sample weights of VS components. Please see FAQ for chainring bolt advice and how to measure BCD etc.

All 3/32" chainrings are 8/9/10 speed compatible and can be used singly or with a 1 x 8, 1 x 9 or 1 x 10 set-up.

Similar to our other chainrings but specifically in a smaller range of sizes for Campagnolo chainsets. Previously in 39t only we now have a larger 42t also available. BCD is 135mm. Width is 3/32" and machined down to 1.9mm so compatible with any 3/32" chain for singlespeed or as part of a 1 x 8, 1 x 9, 1 x 10 set-up. Still made from the same 4.0mm thick 7075-T6 aircraft grade aluminium alloy.

No offset and non-countersunk bolt holes (some cranks may require double chainring bolts rather than single) so reversible without affecting chainline for longer life. Perfect for road use when paired with a 14t, 15t or 16t rear cog or for those who love Campag on their SS MTB a 39t front and 19t on the rear gives the ideal offroad ratio with lots of chain wrap.

Lasco MTB/Hybrid/Road Singlespeed Chainset

We often get asked for a singlespeed chainset usable with an MTB or maybe hybrid frame (all our other chainsets are really designed for narrow chainstay road/track frames) so we now have this Lasco model in our range. It's a strong no-nonsense build and ideal for use on or off-road.

Arm length is 170mm or 175mm with polished finish and black CNC chain/bash guard. Crank bolts included. Chainring is a substantial 36t 3/32" usable with any chain from singlespeed 3/32" and 1/8" to 3/32" 8/9/10 speed so this can also be used as part of a 1 x 9 speed drivetrain or similar. BCD is 104mm so easily swapped with any standard MTB chainring. An 18t rear cog will give the standard off-road ratio of 2:1. See the FAQ for more advice on ratios.

This is a very adaptable chainset, the chainring and guard can be swapped round or you could even convert this to a double chainset. Moving the chainring from the middle to outer position will increase chainline by approximately 8mm.

As usual at VeloSolo we are sticking with square taper fittings as they are tried and trusted, easy to fit and most importantly allow easy adjustment of chainline by varying the BB length to suit the desired set-up. Chainline required will depend on individual set-up but as a guide a 115mm Tange BB will give an approximate 50mm chainline, a 122 mm BB approx 54mm etc. You can of couse fit any length to suit a narrower/wider chainline but make sure the frame has proper clearance. See FAQ for more advice or email if you are unsure.

Token 6061-T6 Lockring for Cassette or Singlespeed Kits

If you are converting a geared bike to singlespeed and you do not have a 12t lockring available from an old cassette or floating about in your spares box then this is what you need.

Similar to Shimano lockrings but machined from heat treated high strength 6061-T6 aluminium.alloy. Weight approx 7g. Anodized and laser etched. Superb finishing touch to a singlespeed (or geared) build. Looks great with VeloSolo singlespeed spacer kits.

Available in black, silver, gold, red or blue and two slightly different sizes. Choose 12t ring for singlespeed conversions with our spacers or when using a 12t small cog cassette on geared bikes. Choose 11t ring for use with an 11t cassette on a geared bike (11t lockring is NOT suitable for singlespeed spacers).

Token 6061-T6 Lockring for CAMPAGNOLO Cassettes

Exact same CNC lockrings as above but now available to fit Campagnolo road bike cassettes. Again, choice of two sizes for cassettes with either an 11t or 12t smallest cog.

Note: we often get asked if our SS spacers are compatible with Campag hubs - they are not designed for Campag but most riders have used them successfully. Unlike Shimano, Campag have changed freehub OD dimensions over the years, the ID of our spacers is 35mm so please measure your hub with a vernier guage if unsure.

Photos show Shimano type mainly in use as a singlespeed lockring - Campag identical in looks except for engraving. These lockrings are of course originally intended for use with a regular geared bike cassette.

Forged Singlespeed Tensioner (Custom Sprung or Un-Sprung*)

If you are converting a geared bike with vertical drop-outs to a singlespeed you will need a singlespeed tensioner to tension the chain (see link to FAQ below). These particular tensioners are well engineered, superb value for money and simple to fit in place of your normal rear mech.

This is free of charge - just ask when ordering. Suitable for road or off-road use with 3/32" chain. Usable with 1/8" chain but may require removal of chainguide. See FAQ for much more tensioner advice.

Note: If you are unfamiliar with chain tensioners and to avoid damage please see the FAQ for set-up and installation advice before fitting one.
