Yippie, my Dean can now be a SS in the winter and a gearie in the summer. One bike can do it all (or nearly all) for me now.

Now if I could just drum up the money for a King SS Disc rear hub....

How do they handle disc brakes with the SS modular dropout? Do you still have to have the EBB?

no they use a horizontal dropout. On the disc side the modular dropout allows for adjustment for the disc brake caliper via slots that allow you to slide the mounting bolts. The disc brake slides to a point where it will be able to grasp the rotor.

Basically you lock down the rear wheel then move the caliper to the appropriate spot in its range of adjustability.

There is no EBB.

I don't have a pic and the Dean website doesn't have a pic of the disc ss mod dropout yet. I won't have mine for a week or so. I will post a pic then.

Sweet way to go for a guy without much more money

Interesting...

So are you saying the non-drive side modular drop-out has the disc tab w/ the slots integrated into the modular piece, or is the slotted disc tab welded onto the frame like normal?

If the disc tab is integrated into the modular dropout piece, I assume the normal geared modular dropouts also have a non-slotted disc tab integrated into the non-drive side piece.

That would be pretty slick.

Have I got this straight?

Yes, that is correct.

Ligero has posted the geared-disc-mod dropout, and the ss-nondisc-mod dropout. Thanks!

If you imagine combining the horizontal dropout of the pictured ss-nondisc-mod dropout and the elongated arm for discs on the geared-disc-mod dropout you would almost have it correct. Instead of two holes for the disc brake mounting bolts you have two slots as I understand it.

I hope that makes sense...
