I'm looking for some visual help here please... I need to see what a bike with dropouts angled in excess of 38 degrees looks like as a basis for comparison.
I assume it should be pretty obvious looking if it was angled that steeply.
I'm curious because I need to pick up a set of anti-rotation washers for a shimano nexus hub and they are dropout-angle dependent.

My one Nexus install is on a 20° drop out so no pics but according to the Non-Turn Washer Application Chart (http://bike.shimano.com/publish/content/global_cycle/en/us/index/tech_support/tech_tips.download.-Par50lparsys-0012-downloadFile.html/05)%20Non%20Turn%20Washer%20Chart.pdf) the 7R/7L washers (black/grey) should work in both 20° and 38° dropouts.

Thank you! That chart is most helpful and it looks like you're totally right on that one, I'll need the black/grey 7R/L washers.
Much appreciated :D
