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)

Yup, those are replaceable dropouts. The plate that is connected by those three allen screws should come off.

I'm not sure why you would want to replace them with trackends though. The adjustability of moving the dropout should take care of chain tension. Plus, since it is a vertical dropout, you don't have to worry about axle slip.

See, that's why you never ask quesitons about e-bay bikes you actually want to buy on this forum. Soon everybody knows and then they're trying to out bid you. Silence and mystery rule the day.

Either that or you don't include a link to ebay pic (instead of copying the image to a someplace else).
