    if the hanger is part of the service that your axle clamps onto, you should leave it on there. you can grind the hanger part off if you want, but leave the dropout part on there.

    Why though? Its not like someone will criticize you for having a hanger left in there.
    everything sucks but my vacuum cleaner.

    And if you ever want to sell the frame it will limit your potential market if you remove it.

    btw the wheel axle "sits" better when removing the hanger. when i have it on i need to push the right stay with a screwdriver in order for the wheel to sit properly. does it really matter if i remove it?

    after another 50 miles or so, the chain will stretch a bit and it won't matter. I would leave it on and grind off the hanger bit if it's bothering you aesthetically. or leave it on in case that frame ever gets gears again, or you have to bolt on some sort of tensioner.

    my first SS mtb as a conversion that worked by a "magic gear" but that only worked for a few rides until the chain stretched. chance are, you're going to feel the urge to buy a dedicated SS frame or bike in a few months, so don't ruin that frame for someone else.
