Paragon SS Dropout, Flat Slider for Belt Drive|
Item #PG-DS1004BD: These are the right and left frame components for our flat sliding dropout (order inserts separately). Made from 17/4 stainless steel, the dropouts are flat, and 5 mm thick at the chainstay and seatstay tabs. The right side has an 8 mm hole properly located to accommodate a seatstay kit (order kit separately) for a belt drive option. The total sliding adjustment is 0.80".
The hardware for assembly is included: four each M8 x 1.25 x 18 steel button head cap screws, two each M5 x 0.8 x 35 socket head cap screws, two each 2 mm thick double washers, two each M5 thumb nuts and two each M5 hexagon locknuts. Both the hex nuts and the thumb nuts are meant to be used as locknuts for the adjuster screw. Typically one or the other is used, not both. Some riders use the adjusting screw bottomed out in the thumb nut, making a larger head for the adjusting screw. If you choose to do this, use the hex nut as a locknut.
