2012 Bikes:
New! 142 mm x 12 mm Dropouts:

We are excited to introduce our flat and flanged titanium and stainless steel sliding adjustable dropouts that accept all 142 mm x 12 mm rear hubs.  The inserts are compatible with the Shimano XTR M988 142 mm x 12 mm skewer only (Shimano P/N ISMAX75A).  The Shimano skewer nut is held captive by a stainless steel retainer and M4 screw.  The retainer offers nine positions (40 degrees) for QR lever alignment and is asymmetric.  It can be flipped over to offer nine more positions that are 20 degrees out of phase with the original positions. The right side inserts are available with a derailleur hanger for multi-speed applications or without a hanger for single speed applications.  The left side insert is supplied with a 12 mm through hole.  The caliper mount is post style for 160 mm rotor disc brake applications.  All inserts are available bare or black anodized.  Frames built with these dropouts to 142 spacing can also utilize any of our other inserts for 135 mm x 10 mm spacing.

Also compatible with the above Shimano 142 mm x 12 mm skewer are our new Wright style, 1 1/2″ diameter, round, rear dropouts in titanium and steel.  The inside face of the dropout is relieved 20 mm wide x 3.5 mm deep to accept all 142 mm x 12 mm hubs, and the flange height is 1.100″.  The Shimano skewer nut is held captive by a stainless steel retainer and M4 screw.  The retainer offers nine positions (40 degrees) for QR lever alignment and is asymmetric.  It can be flipped over to offer nine more positions that are 20 degrees out of phase with the original positions.  The 12 mm skewer holes can be filed as much as .5 mm in any direction to correct for proper wheel alignment. The right side inserts are available with a derailleur hanger for multi-speed applications or without a hanger for single speed applications.  Both inserts are available bare or black anodized.

Adjustable rocker dropouts that accept all 142 mm x 12 mm rear hubs will be available in March.
