He said "and I'd like to convert some high-end road frames to track using these drop outs"
I assume he is talking about road high end frames. Track frame and Road frames are totally different. The existence of cheap ass (called) track frames with road configuration (lower BB, road angles, road fork and brake holes) in the market doesn't mean somebody that takes track seriuosly will chose one of those frames as his war machine. In a matter of fact, in high end frames is even more noticeable, Ciocc, Colnago or even Argon 18 won't grab a road frame and fork and tell you that is a super track war machine ever.
I apologize if I was a little bit sarcastic, I'm not saying that u can't put those campy ends to a super road frame, but I', still wondering how to change the geometry of that frame to make it look more track'y w/o having to take appart almost every single tube of the frame and braze it back together. To lift that BB u need to take the BB off, the chain stays needs to be re allign and short them a little bit also. To move the seat tube angles from 73 degrees to 74 or 75 u have to take appart the seat post lug, with the front of the frame the same thing. OK u get a track fork, the whole front tube needs to be replaced unless u get a road frame big enough to do those changes w/o puttin new tubing, at the end it will be the same than building a new bike. This is the same process if u have to make a frame smaller... it is cheaper to buy a new one or build your self a new one from scratch. Always u can short the bike a little bit, and that will help a little bit but u need to take the front end off anyways and put it back together. At least for me track bike is not the same as a fixed gear bike eventhough both have horizontal ends.
Sorry for my sarcasm, but there is a big difference betweem one frame and another one, if you want to keep angles and fork, yes just swap the ends in the right position. If you want to build a track machine from a road frame, thats another story....thats was all my point
