why is everyone so preoccupied with track ends (I don't think I'm just speaking for myself)? I can get a tight chain with my horizontal dropouts, and it makes taking the wheel off a cinch. Is it just a matter of stopping all possibility of the wheel slipping forward? More gearing options?
I'm only asking, b/c as much as I like the way track ends look, they don't seem functional in the city.
(Really, I'm trying to talk myself out of feeling like I need an expensive new frame instead of my conversion...)
