    Hard Eddie Single Speed Build - Couple Questions

    Iím in process of building up a Hard Eddie frame for single speed and had a few questions.

    Since the disk brake mount is fixed and not attached to the sliding dropout, any pointers on how to adjust it? Are folks just using different spacers on the brake mount to adjust with the different cogs their running? I really wish they would have designed it where they were mounted to the sliding dropout.

    Also, any idea what torque to use on the bolts for the dropouts and should I use some Loctite (242)?

    By the way, the dropouts measure at the standard rear size of 10mm, not 9mm as stated in the other Hard Eddie single speed thread.

    Check out the thread here: Hard Eddie goes single speed
    I haven't found it necessary to adjust the brake caliper with gear changes. Not sure on torque or Loctite on dropouts. I used grease and made sure they were snug- no problems.
