    SS to geared conversion

    So my SO needs a bike. She's a motivated beginner but broke as a joke. I have a older but pristine Kona Unit that I really never use. It has rear facing, horizontal dropouts, steel. Is there any aftermarket bolt-on derailleur hanger thingy out there that would allow me to gear this frame? I know that the answer was "no" a few years ago but, things change, and I haven't been paying attention to these things. They are socket style dropouts so I could saw off the old ones and braze in some geared dropouts, I've done that before in the opposite direction but it's kinda extreme, not sure I like her THAT much.

    The answer has always been yes.
    You can get a right hand slider with gear dropout from Kona.

    So after looking around the Kona website (and the web in general), I don't see anything that would work. Wanna babysit me on this? Please?
