I'm not sure i believe that 20lb inbred is genuinely 20lb and if it is, why do it to an inbred. Surely you're better starting with a light frame if you are coverers about weight? I'll stick a pic of mine when i get on a pc


That does make sense!

IMO sids and all that nice kit look a tad out of place on that Inbred

Just picked this e-bay bargain up today.
It's mint with just a few minor cable rubs & has the sliding rear dropouts so will be my first SS build.
Build will be white & black with some red ano bling.

Anyone know what year it is?


That's not a sliding dropout Inbred, that's what's commonly called a slot dropout one (in other words, track ends).

The sliding dropout version had the same sort of arrangememt as Kona and Voodoo use (the same principle as Paragon sliders, in that the dropout and caliper mount are one piece and move together).

These are sliding dropouts (Paragon in this instance, but the principle is the same for them all).

:oops: Always thought track ends were just fixed rear facing horizontal dropouts


They are - and that's what your Inbred seems to have :wink: , with slotted caliper mount to suit.

It doesn't have the slidey Paragon-like ones .

The 853 singlespeed had sliding dropouts but has been discontinued.
Some people probably called them slidey Inbreds - however, to the very best of my knowledge, the DN6 versions with track ends and slotted caliper mounts have always been known as slot dropout Inbreds...
