    Zero Eight New Dropout

    I have a 2006 zero-eight and have changed the original dropout for the new dropout design with a built in tensioner shown in the attached pic.

    I think I will damage the frame if I use the adjusting screw. Is this necessary for dropouts not moving?

    Thanks

    Sorry for the delayed reply....I've been at Interbike all week.

    The screws are designed to keep the DO's in place. You will need to use them. Yes, you may get a small divot where the screw digs into the frame, but it's not going to hurt the structural integrity of the frame. BMX bikes use a similar system.

    Ok! I have installed them and hope this fix the problem. I have an BMX with tensioner, but itīs a little bit different.
