  • Dropouts too wide?

    Been using my Titus 29er for a month or two now and it’s never really occurred to me if it may have a problem

    The rear dropouts are 140mm apart, this just pulls in OK when I tighten the rear axle bolts up but I was sort of wondering if that’s OK?
    The rear triangle is carbon so the thought occurred that it may be over-stressing it somehow?

    140mm – that’s tandem dropouts isn’t it?

    tandems are 145, not 140

    wasn’t sure of the tandem thing

    just seems odd to have to pull it in

    I’d return it.
