    SS dropouts convert to 9 speed rear wheel?

    Before everyone yells blastfemer!!!, does someone make a derailleur hanger for verticall dropout bikes like a Surly 1x1? to make it like the Karate Monkey?
    The issue is having a 1x9 that I can convert into a SS with a new rear wheel. Plus I know that the KM has both, but I am looking for a super economic solution and there is a lot more MTB stuff in 26'

    Any help would be killer.
    Grassy azz,

    You can order it directly from them and mine didn't take long to get here.

    so... what do you have it on? does it cause you any trouble if your ss doesn't have any cable guides/stops? zip ties work?

    I had it on my Matt Chester for all of 1 hour. I just wanted to see what it was like to have gears on the Chester. I slapped it on, rode around the 'hood, and took it off. It worked fine, and yes, I used zip ties and full housing from shifter to derailleur.

    I took it off and lost it in my mother's garage. That's ok, I haven't had the urge to ever use it again. If I do, I've got lots of digging to do

    Try contacting these guys http://www.teamplanetx.com/ Platnet X and On-One are closely related, and these guys can bring in the On-One stuff from the U.K. They had the new ti Pompino and ti Inbred at Sea Otter last month.
