New Frame-- What's this?

Just got my new Crosscheck frame and attached to one of the tubes was a bag with these. What are they for?

Thanks,
Chuckie

easy: the drop outs take the long bolts for wheel alignment, the brass thing is for your canti hanger, in the back, and that spring is either for the bolts or the canti hanger.

I would have never guessed the wheel alignment. That's really cool. By chance is the spring for that too and I already lost one? I did drop the package once.....

Thank you.

You've lost one spring. There should be one for each of the dropout screws. You can get replacements from www.loosescrews.com.

Cheers.

I found it! I also discovered that my floor is a whole lot dirty than it looks.
