    Hi,

    Think that quite a few bikers knows Paragon Machine Works and their stuff.

    paragon dropouts

    Very interested if anybody is doing similar stuff in Europe/UK?

    Cheers!

    oTmbikes is the European dealer but their website seems to be down at the moment. I have bought from them and the prices were comparable and shipping was fast. Also there was no import tax.

    Fact.. oTm Bikes website is down now.

    Ceeway, good call, just need to find out if they are also offering frame hardware, not sliders only.

    Will drop a line to Shand Cycles.

    Thanks Chaps!

    Happy New Year!

    Cheers!

    From Ceeway, you can buy the aluminium sliders separately from the steel dropouts. Though as there’s no standard for such things, they’re only compatible with each other not necessarily with other frames.

    Oh, and there’s also 2Souls in Germany – though I think their aluminium sliders are the same as the Ceeway ones, anodised black. Nice chunky steel dropouts, though – I used some on a Fatbike recently.

    Hi,

    2Soul Cycles dropouts are pig-ugly I must admit :-/

    If won’t be able to get something from Ceeways probably end up with Paragons.

    After all can’t go wrong with them 🙂

    Cheers!

    Not saying that they are not working, just saying ugly 🙂

    You can shape them a little, drops weight too!

    Considering that my previous hardtail was almost 34 lb you can easily say that weight saving is not exactly my priority xD

    I got some Paragon slider inserts and Gary at Curtis Bikes got some steel frame parts made up for them (to bring them further into the frame rather than hanging out the back). If you go custom your frame builder can probably accommodate whatever you want, within reason.

    Link here.

    I would probably go with flanged dropouts.
    They are offering slightly more slack re. chainstay-seatstay angle.

    Cheers!
