    will a 16 work

    I have a current setup ( for off road) 46/18 with some sturdy wheels
    I would like to sometimes use some road wheels with a 16---am I likely to be able to use the same setup ?
    I have an old road frame with horizontal dropouts(read angled down) and I probably only have about 1/2'' left of rear movement
    The is no chain tensioning device
    Thanks
