    image.jpg all I need now to get on road as bike is the derailer. Here's a pick of the rear dropouts on this frame. Do I need some sort of bracket it adapter? Notice the axle is larger than typical bicycle rim. Also there is the torque arm bracket. I can remove torque arm if absolutely needed.
    I'm trying to get out of taking into shop and paying them to figure it out. Also going to need a rear disk brake mount but tackling this 1st.

    Any help or guidance is appreciated.

    I have 'reversed dropout' derailers here at the shop for bikes with horizontal drop outs - makes moving wheel easy for chain adjust.

    Elaborate please. Would this work for this set up? Pics, price, link...
    I'm a real noob to this so excuse my lack of terminology. I assume my dropouts are rear facing hirizontal?
