    Saint and Hone users

    Hi all,

    EDIT....Ok, I should have done the (re)search first have found a lot of info that makes me think this might work, would love opinions from people who have done this, cheers .../EDIT

    I have a few questions i hope you can help me with....

    I have a SS frame with EBB and at the moment i have a 9sp rear wheel with SS conversion kit. The frame has no mech hanger and vert drop outs.

    I need new wheels (no, honestly I do "need" new wheels), and seeing as i am happy to run a converted 9sp hub for SS use, would it be possible to run a Hone/Saint rear mech/hub as a 1x9 when hangin' with the gear heads in summer and then remove rear mech and use a track nut or similar to secure the r/h side of the hub for SS use (with conversion kit and shorter chain) in the winter?

    I believe the Saint/Hone hub has a 10mm axle and looking at pics of the hubs it seems that the axle is just a longer solid axle to accomodate the rear mech. Is it possible that a spare left hand nut would work on the right side when the mech was not being used? Does this hub have a strange thread or is it standard solid axle size?


    thanks in advance
    David

    The Hone has a solid 10mm axle, you can use a standard 10mm track nut on the derailleur side. The axle will stick out a fair bit, it's pretty long. I have not had a chance to play with the Saint yet, but it appears to have a 10mm removable axle, so you can use the same nut.

    Easy Fix

    I've got the saint hubs as my spare wheel set and switch between the xt & saint derailer. All you need is a thick 10mm washer and 10mm x 1.0 thread nut and you too can have the choices between the wheel set or derailer set ups. Have fun!
