Quick tease

Snazzy new dropouts, shorter chainstays than anyone would ever want... and I don't expect to see dry trails around here for at least a couple of months. I did spin around the block and initially thought it felt terrifyingly twitchy. Then I realized I have only ridden my 7 foot long cargo bike for the last 2 months...

On the plus side, that should give me time to replace the white twist ties that are holding the hoses and also maybe bleed the brakes so they actually work.

Edit: closeup photo of the dropouts here.

Those curved tubes are growing on me. Looks very nice. Would there be enough room to add a front derailleur if you wanted one?

GT - No. No way in hell. You can't even run more than one chainring, and that has to be a 32 or 34t on the outside of the spider!

I'm on board with it. Can you give us a closer look at the dropouts?

No chain keeper? Doesn't look like XX1 either. Are you gonna add one or can you get by without it?

I like the looks of it!
