    Good deal on Outcast29?

    http://cosprings.craigslist.org/bik/2341843786.html

    This seems a good price, assuming the bike is in decent shape. Second question, I have a 2002 Raleigh m40 I'd like to take the cassette off and move over for 1x7. Anyone know off hand if that's compatible or if I'd need to buy a new cassette?

    Thank you

    That frame comes with a 9sp free-wheel hub. Your 7sp won't fit it as it sits. A spacer will need to be added. If that bike is bone stock then you are getting it for about $100 less than the guy paid for it. It should have been delivered with an additional 32t chainring as well.

    I appreciate that. Assuming it has the 32t chainring and I can swap it over to that, is this a fair beginnerish bike? I rode in HS some and am looking to do light singletrack with the wife. I doubt I'm beefy enough for a SS so would need some gearing. When we do ride, on borrowed bikes, I never leave the middle ring so I figured a 1x7 or 9 would be ok. To really add gears on then I would need to get a rear DR, shifter, and cassette?

    It's a great bike. With shifters and cables you will love it. Just make sure you put something on the front to keep the chain from bouncing off if you go geared in the back. I put a front derailleur on mine to keep the chain in line.

    I wouldn't buy used just to save $100. If you want a geared bike, it'll be cheaper just to buy one as opposed to converting a SS.
