    142 x 12 Direct Mount Dropouts

    Been working on some dropouts recently and after my first tab style attempt I'm going with a round profile. It's mostly hollow so the R+L come in at 140g and will be easier to mate with stays.

    Tab Style





    Round Style

    I thought the first version was cool, but that second version is amazing.

    Is it machined from a single billet? Did you make then yourself? If I recall from the recent pics of your shop you just have a lathe no mill. All done on the lathe?

    The der. mount was laser-cut (water jet next time) and then bent and mitered by myself.

    The dropout internal part was turned from round bar and then brazed into a 1.125" x .058" tube. This is to keep the dropout mostly hollow.

    Now this is cool. Very Custom.

    If I don't make an attempt, how will I know if it will work?

    Awesome - thanks for sharing that!

    Does the round style have extra width to act as a passive derailleur protector?

    So Joel, I gotta ask: why make your own when you can buy these from Paragon? Probably the obvious answer, but I'd like to know. Thanks!

    When I came up with the idea Paragon hadn't yet released their Syntace 12mm dropout, I also just wanted to make my own.
