    Help me find some dropouts!

    Help I'm really stuck! I'm looking for some Alu rear MTB dropouts, with disc mounts for use in a carbon frame. Preferably with removable hanger and adjustable angle.. I have found them in one place in the US but have had trouble orderering and don't want to wait another week and a half! Is there anywhere in the UK that I can get them? Thx

    No idea - have you tried asking either in the frame builders forum here or a manufacturer like Condor Cycles? Any reason you can't use one of the US sites you found?

    Don't run red lights, wear a helmet, use hand signals, get some cycle lights(front and rear) and, FFS, don't run red lights!

    I thought I'd ask here first as I assume there are more people from the UK reading. There are frame building supply stores in the US- very few of which do MTB components suitable for Carbon frames and only one I found fit all the requirements (Fairing Industrial Inc). I have had difficulty ordering, and when I called, the connection was too bad to hear anything! I would also like to get them soon, rather than waiting over a week for shipping as well as the high cost.

    The two frame supply shops I called in the US seemed very helpful and had good comms - sorry, I can't remember which ones but they were recommended by the frame builders forum here.

    Good luck with the hunt.
