I picked up this old raleigh the other day and upon stripping it i noticed the dropouts are not the same - and one side is rather shallow / short. but has a lot of Metal left in it.
There is not a lot of 'wiggle room' at the moment.
I will be setting it up as Fixed Gear
- 14, 15 or 16 x 42 - I was intending - its for riding around London which is pretty flat.
So if I can't get a good chainlength by Luck - what are my best options?
1. Try a Half-Link? - (do these only work with some chains? where do i get them?)
2. File the Dropout a bit deeper.
3. Eno Hub - Not worth the money for this frame.
picture should be attached.
