In the parts pile I have an old road frame with stamped horizontal dropouts, and a wheel with a Nexus 8sp hub. This sounds like the makings of a winter beater.
Question is, will the stamped dropouts be able to take the load from the hub's anti-turn washers? I started to have visions of the metal splaying open but I'm not certain if that's an issue if the axle nuts are torqued properly. Thoughts?
