i had ordered a fuji track pro a month and a half ago. the problem with it is that UPS kinda botched the delivery, and bent in the dropouts on the back. it also happened to the fork, but i was able to file that down until i could fit my wheel onto it. i've been trying to contact the seller, who's been totally cool about the whole thing, but with my work schedule (my day's usually at least 12 hrs) i haven't had time to futz with the UPS claims dept.
my question is this:
are the dropouts that are removable steel or aluminum? if they're steel, i imagine i'd be able to remove them, bend them back, and then file down the aluminum on the frame enough to get them back in..
or, just try bending the rears out till i could fit in the wheel, and just run a ratio that allows me to slam the wheel as far forward, to prevent too much leverage on the dropout.
is this a stupid idea all together and i should just forget about this frame and finally get the UPS guy here...
TMLSS: bent rear dropout on a fuji track pro. smart to bend back and ride slammed or forget about it and yell at UPS?
