Track end source help please

Hello,

My google skills must be weak on this particular topic. Looked and looked and I come up empty.

I'm trying to find track ends with replacable stainless dropout plates. In a perfect world they'd have chain tensioners at the front, similar to Paul Component's track ends, but that's not a deal breaker.

Anybody know a US source?

Thanks!!

Ceeway has them. http://ceeway.com/NEWPARTSPAGES/Forg...ropouts.htmThe only other ones I've seen aren't for sale.
Would be an easy thing to make yourself too.
Stainless faces are cool and kinda practical, but making them replaceable is more trouble than it's worth, IMO.

Thanks. I need a US source though. I should have been more clear in my post, so I'll edit it.

Ceeway will ship, works fine. For this sort of thing, if Nova or Bringheli don't have it, you are out of luck in the states

Ceeway is too pricey for me. $25 for shipping and 20% VAT. I'll check the others you listed though. Thanks!

I thought that there was no VAT on overseas orders

correct, VAT is cancelled on overseas. Shipping is going to be around $20 though. A pittance over the lifetime of a frame

It looks like you can get the Paul track ends directly from Paul Components:



Dropouts from Paul Component Engineering

Seems to be a pretty high premium for the adjusters, compared to the Henry James ones.

Why would you want the faces to be replaceable?

one of the tough things about starting to build bicycles is recognizing what a marginal business selling the parts actually is. It's not surprising to go searching for parts, for parts to be temporarily unavailable, or totally unavailable. Paying an extra $20 is nothing if you have to have something that isn't particularly popular.
