    Removable dropouts

    I am making a 93 cadex alm-1 into a single speed. The alm-1 has bolt on vertical drop outs. I am looking to swap these out for track/BMX style. I am unable to find anything like this online.

    Does anyone know where I can get track/bmx rear dropout that will bolt on to this frame?

    Since this is the framebuilding forum, the most obvious answer would be to make them! Looks like they are made from flat plate. Even if you find someone to do it, it shouldn't be too expensive. Could even waterjet cut them.

    I've never seen them aftermarket as you were hoping.

    Just use an hanger-mounted tensioner. Or make yourself some track ends (doable with hand tools). You will definitely not find a compatible part aftermarket for a 20 year old bike.

    For slightly less amount of fabrication, you might also be able to start with some ready-made horizontal track dropouts, cut and drill them to fit onto the cadex frame.
