    Aluminum adjustable drop out supplier.

    Does anyone know of an aluminum drop out supplier with a variety of drop outs to chose from? I need a much better option for enhanced weldability. I am making small BMX frames so the seat stay angles will need to be flexible.

    Thanks!

    paragon will make custom dropouts, I don't know if that is economic for you. I thought their approach would end up at a fairly reasonable price if the quantity was reasonable. If you think it might work out, call Mark, he's very approachable.

    Sure they do. You just have to remove some metal that doesn't look like a dropout.
