    Falcon Index System?

    I was servicing my bike for the first time, took off my derailleur.. but I didn't really take enough notice to where a bolt came from.. and how it was all on there.. and now if I want things to be secured properly and trustably.. I need to know where to put this back

    So can anybody help me out somehow? it has falcon index system printed across it

    The nut goes on the inside of the dropout and should have a lip that actually goes inside the dropout. The bolt goes through the rear derailleur hole (it's shaped like a 'round circle') behind the dropout to bolt it back on the frame.

    Okay. I will need to try harder at centering the wheel I guess, darn.. I almost got out of it, that actually explains why the hell my brake pad was bent... and probably why one side of the wheel was closer to the frame than the other >.<
    Glad I took the time to actually take care of it myself, wouldn't have ever been able to fix my brakes. Thanks

    It's definately a weird pain in the butt. After the nut thingy goes on the dropout...it makes it a royal pain to get the wheel straight b/c the bottom of the dropouts are now different depths.

    Makes for a good singlespeed frame though. Lose the derailleur and you have equal depth.
