    Show me some Steep Angled Dropouts

    I'm looking for some visual help here please... I need to see what a bike with dropouts angled in excess of 38 degrees looks like as a basis for comparison.


    I assume it should be pretty obvious looking if it was angled that steeply.

    I'm curious because I need to pick up a set of anti-rotation washers for a shimano nexus hub and they are dropout-angle dependent.

    My one Nexus install is on a 20 drop out so no pics but according to the Non-Turn Washer Application Chart the 7R/7L washers (black/grey) should work in both 20 and 38 dropouts.

    Thank you! That chart is most helpful and it looks like you're totally right on that one, I'll need the black/grey 7R/L washers.

    Much appreciated
