Dropout Adapters

Never seen these before - presumably they raise the BB/back end a tad (which could be offset by running a skinny rear/fat front tyre.

That's a well produced version of a really bad idea.

There's nothing stopping the hanging dropout from rotating around the original dropout when you put the power down, so the right end of the axle will shift forwards and the tyre will rub on the left chainstay and bring you to a halt.

reet sketchy that is. If you really wanted sutin like that it would be best to make it yourself, so you can customize it to the bike you want to run it on, you could change the amount of rise, build it using 2 bolts to stop rotation, or something like a no turn washer like used on hub gears.
