Fixie conversion

Hi I’m new to the fixie scene and i was wondering will vertical dropout work for a fixie conversion?


when people post things like this i like to hope they’re just taking the piss.

but in case you’re not:

  1. try the search button at the top of the page
  2. see here:

it IS technically possible to use vertical dropouts, but it’s way more hassle than it’s worth. no need to make things that difficult for yourself.

This also helps :wink:

-“magic” gear ratio/half links (dodgy)

then there’s two ways to take up the chain slack… both are fairly expensive
-eccentric bottom bracket
-eccentric hub ( for example)

thanks for the help guys
