    Chewed up Alum drive side dropout.

    As the title says...the drive side dropout is chewed up.
    Nothing major....the axle threads have dug in enough over the last few seasons so that the wheel is a little off.

    I tried the JB Weld route....it didn't last long.


    Suggestions?

    jb weld in a piece of stainless shim stock? Or is that what you did? You could always file out the other side a little, but make sure it would resist the pull of the chain

    I don't want to file the non drive....I think I will just make things worse.
    I did put aluminum shim stock in....like I said, it didn't last long.

    Anyone have luck building up the area with weld?

    welding on aluminum isn't the best idea in this application

    Is there enough room to mill out a small pocket and put a small piece of steel or sacrificial aluminum?
