    Do you leave these bolts on the dropouts when you run gears like this

    Or take them off like this?

    I found they kept working loose and rattling so I removed mine. The dropouts have never moved.

    Can’t see the first pic, but mine has a third black bolt in where you have none in the second pic

    leave mine in, so i know where they are. If I took them out I’d loose them. 😕

    Cheers Craig that’s what I thought. Nice bike BTW.
    Should I wait for a few contradictory answers with explanations backed up by the Laws of Physics and science then a few “real world” answers from “real world” riders then an interventon from someone who once met an an engineer in a pub and who knows for a fact I will die if I ride it without them .Then it all degenerates into a huge slanging match with personal insults being hurled across the interweb-it’s the STW way!

    The nut they screw through has movement which if you over tighten the bolt will push the end of the bolt off the sliding dropout. You only need it to fine tune the wheel alignment.

    I took mine off and bagged them. You only want them if you are using the horizontal dropouts to tension the chain for a singlespeed or hub gear.
