    Can I turn an 08 F5 into an 8 speed??

    I posted a thread asking for some help building an 8 speed in the internal hub forum but I wanted to get some feedback on whether or not I can use my 08 F5 frame to build and internal hub 8 speed alpine. What do you guys think? Can it be done or should I just go out and look for a frame that will support 8 speed?

    yes it should be no problem but you'll need a way to get the chain tensioned. look in the singlespeed forum for suggestions. you can use a chain tensioner on your derailleur hanger or an eccentric bottom bracket.
