While our bolt-on hub have great holding power, there are cases where a rear single speed hub can slip in a slotted dropout. This can lead to a rubbing tire, or in the worst cases a thrown chain. Slipping axles are a thing of the past with our singles speed Dropouts with axle keeping hardware.
The axle keeping bolt sets the rear wheel's position, and large knurled knobs make it easy to adjust the chain tension by hand.
These wide steel gripping faces of our Dropouts won't deform or warm under heavy clamping forces, like some aluminum dropouts.
If you are a frame builder or are having a builder convert a steel frame to horizontal dropouts, give us a call. Larger builders may qualify for a discount on quantity orders.
