    29er Single Speed

    Has anyone actually seen the the F29er3 frame (the one with the EBB)? I am wondering whether it has cable stops so you could run gears on it at some point. Thanks.

    i have seen the bike...

    The only guides on the frame are on the bottom of the top tube and seat stay. These are for the rear brake.

    You would have to use full housing, zipties, and a new derailleur hanger but adding gears should not be too hard.

    Thanks. That is what I thought. I am just surprised they didn't go ahead and put the cable stops on (like an El Mariachi or a Niner sir9).

    If there are no cable stops what would you do for the front derailleur cable?

    With the eccentric BB, it will be a trick to put gears up front. You could use a problem solvers guide if you had to. Yes, it is becoming some work but it is designed as a single speed.
