    Roberts Cycles Dogs Bolxs

    This is my buddies Roberts Cycles Dogs Bolx frame.

    And in his own words:

    It's finished in a new matt lacquer they do that is rubberised and resists scratches better than standard gloss lacquer. You'll also notice the carbon chainstays and seatstays. They are in fact steel stays with a rather pimpy paint effect that makes them look like carbon!! The sliding dropouts are for a Rohloff hub although for now, I'll be running a Chris King SS hub which you can see in the pics
    Lovely I hope you'll agree?

    ... and if we just ... Good call

    Four years ago I had Roberts build me a SS Dogs Bolx, it was the first specific SS one they'd built.

    @dansjustchillin, when I bought mine it was £495. More details - http://www.robertscycles.com/

    First off - lovely frame. My lust for Roberts predates the Dogs Bolx, when he was making the White Spider with a custom mix of tubes... oh lovely.

    Anyhow.

    Rohloff dropouts are normally set at 20degs. I didn't know why until I was speaking to them recently. It's so that the tension of the chain doesn't pull straight along the dropout slot, stopping the wheel sliding forward under chain tension.

    On our sliding dropouts, I made a tiny chain tug to stop this happening (as our drops are horizontal, or thereabouts).

    I've heard of sliding drops sliding when they aren't meant to. Big ugly serated star washers under the bolt heads helps.
