Drop out replacement+new to forum
I'm new to the forum but was looking for information on replacing some dropouts with trackends on my fixedgear. I was wondering if anyone has done this before. I already have my trackends and I've fabricated a dummy axle at the exact same 120 spacing as the frame. I'm planning on clamping the seat & chain stays with pieces of angle iron and C-clamps. I will then debraze the original dropouts and replace them with the ones I ordered. I don't know how to braze but am very competent at welding, so I was planning on welding the new steel track ends in place. Before I actually de-braze the original dropouts. I was hoping for some additional tips/advice/warnings what have you. Thanks.
