Alternator Dropouts Instructions
    •    Adjustable Ride Characteristics-  Using the Alternator dropouts, geared riders can finetune the ride characteristics of their bike by adjusting chainstay length and overall wheelbase to be quick and nimble, or longer and more stable
    •    Set-It-And-Forget-It Singlespeed Setup- The Alternator dropouts swinging design and set screws offer quick setup and tensioning. Vertical wheel entry means no re-tensioning or brake adjustments are necessary after a wheel change. Slip-free and creak-free performance
