    Paragon Rocker drops 135/142 insert exchange?

    I have done some googling, but it's still not totally clear to me. Can I build a frame with Paragons Rocker drops with 135mm QR inserts, and then swap the inserts out to use a 142x12mm axle? It would be nice if I could build a 142x12 frame without making new jig parts.

    interesting point. I bought a 142 dummy axle, but you could use a 135 dummy axle with a spare set of inserts. The cost is about the same if you can use Anvil dummy axles

    I'm doing this same thing now. It's nice to have a 'fixture' set of inserts anyways especially if you braze the dropouts.
