Finished first fixed gear build, how much is okay in the dropouts?
Just finished setting up my first fixed gear build today. Rides great! Currently, the rear axle is about 1/2 from the open end of the dropout(so an inch in from center of axle post). Is this too close to the end of the dropout to be safe?
I took it out for a few miles on hills & flats and it all seemed okay. But since fixed is a new animal to me, I am being overly cautious.
I think if I added another link, I'd be at the rear of the dropout and risk not being tight chained.
