    sliding drop-outs on SS

    I have an SS frame with horizontal drop-outs. Are there some after market sliding drop-outs that I can buy to fit my frame? Or will it change the position of the wheel too much to make everything fit?

    You have track-ends not drop-out is that right? If so mabybe the Surly axle-tug is what you are looking for.

    I guess I'm not familiar with the term track-ends. The drop-outs are horizontal and there is an opening at the back. I do have some tug-nuts that came on a Bianchi SASS frame. I no longer have that frame but the drop-outs are the same. I was hoping that I could install drop-outs similar to what Kona and On-On use in their design. Is that possible here?

    Those are called track ends although it's a dropout design that is seen on a wide range of bikes like BMX, old coaster bikes, and modern mountain bikes.

    I don't think you need to change the dropouts and the tugnuts should fit to keep the wheel secure.

    Rear entry = track ends. You can't install Paragon-style sliders without taking out your track ends and welding in the replacements, then repainting. I don't think you really want to do that, but it can be done. $$$

    No.

    At least not without involving welding.
