1x9 meaning the gears? ...it's 1x8
need to get rid of that horrible steel chainring and replace it with a middleburn!
half tempted to go single speed though, does anyone know what a good combo of rings/teeth is for that sort of set up??
OK, so 1x8
single speed: depends what you want to use the bike for-commuting, recreation on flat surface, mtb ? - all this attract your choice of gearing, but with 1x8 you are def. more flexible when you want to use the bike in diff. terrains.
before going into SSP pers. I would change the stem - that Azzonic looks a bit to bulky compared to the sleek tubes of the frame, just a thought

any 1996 KONA frameset or full bike
