    Hammer 29 SS vs. Geared

    I searched a bit here, and also posted in the 29er forum, but I figured I'd try you guys as well.

    I'm looking at a Hammer 29 frame, and it seems to me that the "SS" vs. "geared" distinction is based soley on the build-up of the complete bike and not on the frame itself. Based on the RM website, it looks like both frames have a read derailleur hanger, EBB, and cable guides. Are they one in the same, just different colors?

    Also, has anyone here had issues with the EBB? I wouldn't plan on running it SS, just as a 2x9 setup, so I don't want to complicate things with an EBB. At the same time, I like RM's way of business and I like the Reynolds tubing.

    Any thoughts from those in the know?

    Both frames are identical.
    Other than a little maintainance and a little extra weight there is no performance based reason to avoid the EBB on a geared bike.
