    Drop out modification - need advice

    I want to change this semihorizontal drop out into vertical one and it would look like this.



    It's a steel plate dropout so I am thinking to cut the bottom one and wield another steel plate to make this, instead changing the whole dropout with another new industrial forged/plate - well it's just a cheap frame though but I like the geometry. I will use magic gearing or BB tensioner for the chain.

    The reason is I want to use QR safely - I really want to use QR that bad.

    I need advice, would this work or not.

    Thanks.

    I'd post this in the framebuilding subforum. It's full of people who actually know this kind of stuff.

    BTW, why?
