The bike we will be playing with today is a Santa Cruz High Ball. Yes, we are aware that this particular bike does come with single-speed dropouts that are specifically designed to single-speed this rig. For demonstration purposes, Shaun from ForTheRiders has left on the fixed position dropouts so that we can run an aftermarket tensioner.
Running an aftermarket tensioner off the rear hanger is one of the easiest ways to single-speed your bike.
