    Love SS but I hate pushing my bike up long hills

    I really like riding single speed on the street, and at the park, but from time to time I end up on a trail with a really long climb. I'm using and Orgin-8 Interrogator with horizontal dropouts. But it has a rear derailleur mount. I don't has a place to mount a chain guide. Does anyone know if its possible to mount a derailleur in the rear and keep tension for DJ/Park and a little DH on a HT without a guide?

    If not I'll keep it single speed and look for an XC bike but it would be great to do it all on one ride. (Saves me a lot of cash for a FR/AM bike later)

    Ditto. You can use an e-type adapter plate that sandwiches between the bottom bracket cup and the frame.

    I'm running 28 - 12 gearing, with 170mm cranks. I don't know how thick the bottom bracket is if thats what your asking.

    I meant the adapter plate. I will be in need of one soon if I don't get another frame...

    The adapter plate is 2.5mm thick. It takes the place of one of the spacers.

    you could dingle speed it- then you'd have two gears instead of one.

    just use a bottom bracket mounted guide. Every E-13 comes with an iscg to bb adapter plate.
