No , hehe

But I don't know why this dent ever bothered you. Have you ever heard about frame cracking in that area ? It just gives you an option to run bigger sprockets.



I think the dimples just look terrible. It's like a pretty woman with a large hairy mole on her face. You just can't not notice it.

hmm if its like the avatar image, it should look nice

i like that taper-lock design.  now if it works on the outside, then there should be peg size washers?  those ones look too small for pegs to rest against...

all you guys and the new frames, i'm never going to have money

With this system, there's no real way to accommodate for the correct amount of spacing, as it will never be consistent.

There' no problem if the washer is oriented outside and I think these dropouts have been designed that way. The distance between the dropouts will stay the same. It's a really good and simple idea.

The dropouts were originally designed this way, but Zion, from what it seems, will be the first to use the taper lock washer on the inside of the dropout.

Someone else mentioned it, but these could be used with the washer on the outside, as long as the washer was larger (1.5" diameter), to allow a full, flush surface for the peg to rest against.

Is Juggs still confused?

The dropouts seem like a really sick idea btw. I'm really curious to see what kind of strength this gives the rear end.

I love when someone makes something work even better.  Seems like a great Idea.

you liken a dimple hid, at least on my frame, by the sprocket/crank arm to a hairy mole
on a face?  it would be more like a hairy mole on the back of the neck, above the hair line a
little.
