    Quick Question: Sugino Messenger for 1x9

    Is there any reason I won't be able to utilize Sugino Messenger crank arms for a 1x9 drivetrain? I'll be using a 9 spd. Ultegra rear derailleur. Any thoughts or experiences? I know this is a geared bike related question but still thought it would be best to ask here.

    Thanks!

    Should be fine with a 3/32 ring; not sure what the chainline to your gears of choice might look like with the standard bb....

    I'm not sure if you will have issues with dropping your chain but if you do. Get this.

    I'm not one for fawning over bicycles, but I do believe that our bikes communicate with us, and what this bike is saying is, "You're an idiot." BikeSnobNYC
