    El Mar Dropout Q

    When purchasing a new El Mariachi frame, is there a choice of dropouts, or does it just come with 135x10, and you're left to purchase a different set of dropouts separately?

    Thanks.

    The latter. It comes in 135x10 with hanger. The others are available as needed. (I have photos of the 142x12 here if you'd like to see them. Be forewarned; they aren't cheap.)

    Tough to swallow, but I purchased some. I'm really looking forward to riding this bike!

    The reason the thru axle drop outs are so expensive is because they come with the thru axle. If you ever have to replace one, you'll find out, and you won't be happy. haha
