Rear Axle Position
On a bike with rear horizontal dropouts,does it matter where in the dropouts you position the axle?Front,middle or rear?
I changed my rear freewheel from a Shimano 12-30 to a Shimano"Mega"(14-34T) and it seems to shift much,much better with the axle in the rear of the dropouts.I have downtube friction shifters,no indexing.
