    Bandit 29 - SS Compatable?

    I see that the Bandit 29 can swap to a pair of horizontal dropouts and possibly be run single speed? Of course that would depend on how the chain reacts to suspension compression... is that what is referred to as chain growth? Anyway, will it work?

    It will not work. You would need to run a chain tension device like the Paul or Yess.

    Not at all or not well? Do you know what the chain growth numbers are?

    Not at all without a chain tensioner. I have a double and even with only 80mm travel it still requires a tensioner.
