Hello everyone, I never even noticed the OnOne forum before. Probably because I never looked.
My Sand Slot Dropout Inbred was poleaxed in a car accident on Sunday. I use it as a commuter/tourer and use mudguards. So far I have been lucky and never punctured as I'd have to remove the mudgaurds to get the back wheel out. I run Conti 700x47c grooved slicks tubeless, even on gravel fire roads loaded up.
My hope was to take the insurance money and put together a Salsa Fargo, but I noticed the swapout and dropout frames are eyeletted for racks and a much cheaper option.
The dropout frame has the eyelets perched on top of the dropout and it worries me that loaded up on rough ground they might not be able to hang on. The swapout frame is tapped similarly to the slotted frame, but while it's available in my size, it's only available in apple puss green.
I am curious what people's experience is running loaded racks on the dropout frame and if anyone has had the eyelets pop off. This could cause major inconvenience if it happened to me.
