I have a slidding dropout and I was just thinking of how you guys actually set it to make sure that you have your rear wheel centered on the frame?

Do you measure the distance on the retention bolts, or measure the slider area. I guess the most accurate would be to actually measure the the distance between the rim and the stays? (right side rim to right stay and left side rim to left stay)

This is what I have if that makes any diff in how it's done...
Cheers!

I set mine a little off center to the drive side. Mine slip just a hair as I hammer so that centers it up perfect.
Trial and error is the best teacher.

I eyeball / measure the distance between the tire and the chain stays on each side.
That's how I do it. Seems to work every time.
