Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Soma Rush build specs/general dropout question

Somafab.com describes the frame as "Tange Prestige heat-treated CrMo steel; butted CrMo rear end." What does it mean to have a butted rear end. I know what butting is, but I don't know what it means in this context.
Edit: Nevermind the dropout question...figured it out.
