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)

I was going to try and build a frame... and was wondering if anyone knows if the exterior socketed dropouts are available for purchase from any shops or manufacturers.

I did post in frame building forum, but some one suggested I post in here as well..

I'm pretty sure they are added by the builder. I've looked too and none are available that I could find. There are socketed fork dropouts available from nova though.
