    Dropout Spacer Question

    My old Voyager 11.8 has a little dropout spacer in the rear. Kinda handy. Any modern equivalents/generic parts like this out there?

    A picture would come in handy here. That said - what is the spacing between the dropouts? 126mm? 130? What are we looking at here? If you use a spacer to make up for a axle designed for a 130mm, on 135mm dropouts*, this will alter the dishing of the wheel used. You'd need to re-dish it to match it's new dimensions.

    * same for, say, 126mm for 130mm.

    I think this is what you mean:

    And you can almost certainly find them cheaper if you look around-

    I get it now. Yes - my Puch has threads to screw a set-screw down into to space the insertion-depth of the axle to alter the geometry of the bicycle. All the way back and it's a self-steering, way-fast "sport-touring*" machine. Inwards - an intermediate racer. Didn't know they made something like that for frames not so equipped. Nice!
