    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.

    So...are you going to show the rest of the bike?
    I'm not one for fawning over bicycles, but I do believe that our bikes communicate with us, and what this bike is saying is, "You're an idiot." BikeSnobNYC

    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).

    because the seller is a moron. thats why he put a reseve on it aswell.
    oh and look how he is saying that the headset and BB will cost extra. some
    fantasy price that he will pull out of his ass in the end or something.
