    frame with track (horizontal) dropouts?

    I was wondering if there were any current frames available that use horizontal "dropouts" like Vassago's Jabberwocky? I've hit my limit with my Trek/Fisher Rig's perpetually slipping, sliding dropouts. I have some White Ind hubs with bolts rather than quick releases so I'm thinking that going that direction. Steel is preferred but not my only consideration.

    ... oh yeah, it needs to be a 29er.

    On-One Inbred 29er comes to mind

    I'd say give swing drops a shot (Salsa El Mariachi). Flawless performance when I had it.

    But Surly Karate Monkey/Ogre would be my choice if I were wanting track ends.

    I think the new On-One swap drop out frame is great.

    You can have vertical or horizontal drop outs, you can get magic gearing or slide the axle for chain tension.

    What type/brand of quick release are you using? I had that problem on my Vassago until I took other's advice and picked up a used Shimano XT skewer for $10. I put it on and thought "this isn't gonna fix crap". To my surprise my wheel hasn't slipped a single time since!

    Thanks for the input. I pulled the trigger on a Jabberwocky this weekend thanks to the 25% off sale on hucknroll.
