    eh?

    does it have a replaceable gear hanger/drop out piece?
    if not I dont think theres an aftermarket hanger you can add to a vertical drop out frame

    Your best bet is a saint rear mech that bolts onto the hub axle.

    Stoner,no its a custom bit of steel so no replaceable hanger,thanks for the heads up on Saint

    fit an alfine perhaps? thatd give you same as 1:9 ?

    the DMR one is good. had one on a jackflash. but as trail_rat says only on trackends.

    so Saint or gear hub is your only option.
    You’ll also need a cable stop if running a gear hub, but if you run continuous outer to a mech you wont – just zip tie to the frame.

    You can just use a cheap pressed steel mech hanger – about £2 from most bike shops. They slip over the axle and the QR holds them in place. You might have to file the hanger into shape if you’ve got cowled or otherwise non-flat dropouts but it works fine.

    paule you mean something like this? DIRT gear buddy (no longer produced unfortunately)

    doesnt really look substantial enough to last long in the alps.

    That’s the one trail_rat. Used one on my ss jump bike for a while and it was fine (on horizontal dropouts) and have used one while waiting for a new mech hanger on another frame.

    gonna struggle with that on a vertical dropout

    Depending on quite how the dropout on your SS is designed, the DMR one could easily be modified by removing the “sticky out channel doobry” that slides along trackends and just clamp directly to the outside of the dropout. That way you could use an existing mech.

    5mins with the angle grinder, then 15mins with a file and emery cloth to finish I reckon 😉
