    Hi mate,

    forgive me if im wrong, but im sure you just answered your own question :S

    ‘Hi all, I am going to turn my bike into single speed and my question is can i run single speed on my standard 9 speed cassette’

    You have to buy the conversion/spacer kit, to which you also said,

    ‘i am going to buy a new single speed hub in the next few months so don’t see any point buying the dmr conversion kit thanks’

    He means He doesnt want to Buy the single speed sprocket and spacer kit He just wants to get the single speed Rear Mech and use his original cassete untill he gets his dedicated single speed Hub

    Cant see why there would be a prob i have done sevral single speed conversions my latest been a giant XTC Carbon and have been using on-ones single speed rear mech its great adjustable and cheap at only a tenner and it only comes to about £25 if you buy the single speed sprocket and spacer kit onone.co.uk

    Heres a pics on my carbon XTC

    no in a word, a standard cassette has ramps on it to help it jump up to the next gear and will try to do so even with a singulator or some other single speed device thats why people make conversion kits.
