    I've already held one of the Ti ones in my hands (couple of months ago), scary light!

    You're right. We're not making one. Because I don't really like the compromises that horizontal dropouts and discmounts give you.

    They kind of work OK when the wheel's in there, but they're fiddly to get the wheel out of (you often have to loosen the caliper and remove a caliper bolt), and they can make the wheel move backwards under hard braking on the disc side (which knocks your wheel to the left).

    I do like the simplicity of the solution, but I don't like the real world problems it gives.

    We are doing another singlespeed-with-discmounts - but are working around a sliding dropout design that I've just finalised, and will be in production shortly, with stuff available early next year.

    This same dropout will be offered on steel and titanium frames, both singlespeed specific and geared too, with geometries for rigid only, short travel, and long travel forks.

    Any pics of the new design Brant?
    Has the sliding vert drop got a nice inbuilt tension adjuster?

    I'm not releasing pics yet, as the sliding thing is quite funny and solves a couple of problems in a funny "oh yes" sort of way.

    It's got a built in tension adjuster thing too :-)
