i think its just the angle the pic's on, the wheel does fit quite nicely in the dropouts, only the brake wouldn't reach :( but thats fine, i'll just take the studs out for the time being and put a brake on the front

Bummer about the brakes but looks really nice anyway. You going to try and track down some wheels for it?

theyre a little difficult to find and id have to find tyres as well, so probably not. but its got a brake on the front, which works well and doesnt spoil the look of it too much, so i think i'll just leave it alone
