    Diagram on axles moving in drop out under braking

    Was surfing around and found this, thought it was interesting. Wondered why my Inbred has the brake mounts located there - makes fitting BB7's difficult.

    A diagram about why some wheels move in dropouts under braking Shed Fire : Designing for On-One, Titus and Planet X from Calderdale.

    Yep. I suffered for a month on my axle moving in my initial set up of my single speed. This was painfully awful. I have a Vassago Jabberwocky with track horizontal drop outs brake mounted in rear just like diagram 1. I came really close to getting rid of the frame. All my other single speeds I have owned had different dropout set ups. I will never buy a frame with horizontal drop outs again!
