    08 Caffine 3 SS

    Does anyone know if this bike, in its stock form is gear compadiable? If you wanted to make it 1x9 would you need to change much??

    Who knows the goods about this bike?? I am not too familiar w/ CDales......

    As is, the bike is equiped with a bottle-opener rear hanger. If you wanted to run gears I believe all you'd need to do is replace it with a proper derailleur hanger.

    Oh, but there's no cable stops... might be a problem. If you really want gears you're probably better off with one of the other models.

    1x9 is possible. Zipties are ugly, but possible.
    I'd say if you want 1x9, get the 2 model and remove the 2 chainrings, then if you need to go singlespeeding, get a tensioner.
    The only question now would be - why would you

    The only reason I'm not getting the caffeine SS is the lack of space in my house. Already got a rush and a chase...
