    1x5 on a Bontrager Duster SS Wheel?

    Does anybody have experience or knowledge about running gears on a Bontrager Duster SS 29er rear wheel?

    I've got a 2011 Kona Unit 2-9 with the Duster SS Wheelset, giving serious consideration to buying parts to having the option of running the Unit as a 1x5.

    Thanks!

    you'll have to change your sig.


    does the freehub body have one smaller spline like typical geared hubs? If so, i'm sure you can fit at least 4 from a cassette. If not, you may be stuck using singlespeed cogs.

    I think my Sig is still safe. I'm considering selling my 2008 Hei Hei and having the option of a few gears on the Unit instead. I'd only gear it up for the really big hills that I can't do with 32x20.
