    Kona Unit geared hanger.

    I have the 2012 Unit and I'm happy using it as a single speed for mtn bike riding. I do want to but 1x9 on it with some cross tires just for some fall riding. Has any one been able to get a hold of one these hangers? I've also seen that the Honzo uses sliding dropouts, will the Honzo dropouts work on a Unit? Any help will be much appreciated.

    Thanks. It's not available in Canada for some reason. I've been in contact with the guys at bikeman.com so I'll have one soon.

    Need Chain Guide to run gears?

    I was also thinking of trying the Unit out as a 1 x 9/10. Do I need a chain guide up front to keep the chain on, or will the bash guard be enough?
