    2012 Kona Unit and Paragon Machine Works Geared Dropouts?

    I have a 2012 Kona Unit frame with sliding dropouts like this - KONAWORLD

    I am looking for a geared dropout that is compatible. I've checked on Kona's website but they are "sold out".

    I am wondering if PMW slider's would work - www.paragonmachineworks.com - B4006RightSideInsertforFlatFlangedSlidingDropout10 mmSkewerHanger

    I contacted PMW and they said they were not sure if they were compatible or not.

    Anyone have experience or have a Kona dropout to sell?

    I would think the PMW would be compatible, but I don't know for sure.

    you can check ebay, i recently needed a replacement slider (for another bike) and found a new one for cheap.

    SS 29+
    Fat Lefty
    SS cyclocross
    Full Sus 29er (Yuck)

    Stop asking how much it weighs and just go ride it.

    I would ask PMW. there have been a lot of frames over the years that all use that PMW design.

    I was wondering about this as well. I have a Kona A that was hoping to use the PMW sliders on.
