    Disc Dropout that Shifts Wheel Back & Up?

    I'm thinking (once again) of having new dropouts welded/brazed onto my old steel MTB frame (1990 Team Marin). Yes, I know for the price I'll pay I might as well buy a new frame, but I'm attached to this frame for sentimental reasons. However, if I can't make this bike into what I want, it's going to be donated, because it's taking up space in my very cramped house and I don't ride it enough to warrant it doing so unless...

    Is there a dropout from Paragon or the like that both allows the wheel to be pulled back and up? Thus lowering the BB and providing a tad more space in the chainstay?

    What material and skewer? There are semi vertical drop outs for road bikes but I suspect what you want would have to be made.

    No I'm looking for a rocker, slider, or toggle. Some on the market already kind of move the wheel up, but I'm looking for something more drastic.

    It's a steel 135 rear.

    Rockers or sliders can both be set up to do that, but they are *extremely* unlikely to line up well (ok, at all) with your existing chainstays and seatstays.

    Send the frame off to a new home. Sorry.
