i bought the khs solo on se 29er frame with the rear slider as in the pic.
please advise if there is a " converter " for adding a deraileur hanger on that rear slider , so i can swich also to a " geary " frame if i fail to enjoy the ss set-up .
thanks

here is an option for you:

https://vassagocycles.com/hardware.html



other places carry these as well, but i can't recall who at the moment.

vassago also carries this:



which might be helpful as well since you may need the cable guide.

**note** i've not done this.....just delved into it because i was looking at a couple of sliding dropout frames and didn't really want to run singlespeed until i get a bit stronger.

ammmm

thanks for the post , but now i'm confused
i thought ( and maybe i'm wrong ) that the hanger will come from the inside , where it should be " smooth" , so i will just " plug" it to the groove in the frame and screw the bolts from the outside .
do u think it is not possible with the Vassago solution ( much much cheaper )
thanks

Well... If you look here, it appears that the Vassago is meant to be placed on the outside:


You might be able to put it inside but I suspect that if you place the same way as in the Vassago picture, but inside the dropout, it will alter the width of the dropout which is probably not a great thing to do.

But maybe the one for the Optimus will work?

This is not an "official" solution no matter what, so it's likely that nothing is going to be exactly right.

You can also get a Shimano Hone Derailleur and hub to add gears. I did it on my Monocog and it worked great. Unfortunately it reminded me why I had a Monocog in the first place. I just don't like derailleurs.

As slowride pointed out, they look awfully similar to the Paragon sliders. I have a spare slider here and could measure the key dimensions of the dropout if you have a caliper or micrometer to measure the one on your bike for comparison.

Here are the dimensions of the dropout/slider interface, they are really close to hole millimeter numbers. I'm going to assume that's not a coincidence and show them as whole numbers:

Those are the interface dimensions for the spare Paragon Machine Works dropout I have here at the house. My spare slider is for a singlespeed, like yours, but the interface dimensions are the same.

It doesn't look like they have it listed in the updated version of their website yet, so you will need to call Paragon Machine Works and handle it over the telephone. Just ask for a spare sliding dropout insert with derailleur hanger. They'll know what you're asking about.
