Default Yo Rebuild Single Speed option

All I am starting the planning of a Yo rebuild, getting an ingleheart fork lined up and taking it back to an original frame and BOI rigid fork layout. But I am toying with the idea of converting it to a single speed as I think i will more use out of it as I have a santa cuz tall boy as my prime ride and looking to use the Yo as a single speed, I don't want to alter the frame and use conversion to get a single speed set up, Any one else running a yo as a single speed and have some info on good or bad conversion parts and setups?

great wheels for a YO.

+1 for an ENO hub, keeps it looking very clean.

The eno hub is sweet. Make sure it's the 'eccentric' variety before purchasing though; they also make a standard hub that doesn't take up chain slack. I might also add that I usually have luck finding a 'magic gear' that yields good chain tension without any ss specific conversion parts or horizontal dropouts. Right now Ive got a size 19" IF deluxe (ca. y2k) set up SS with a 32x20 and a sram ss1 chain. The chain tension is dialed with that gear!

JUST finished building up an Eno eccentric for my Wicked. I haven't had a chance to shake it down yet, but will report back after.

One thing for sure, it is CLEAN and looks GOOD. Very nicely done hub.

there's also Trickstuff's Excentric BB if you are ok with running a newer 'through axle' Shimano crank instead of a square taper crank
