These dropouts replace the factory dropouts on a Cove Bikes Shocker DH 2007–2010 and Cove Bikes STD 2008–2010.
The rear axle location has been moved up and slightly rearward to modify the whole bike’s geometry.
BB drop 11mm (-7/16″)
Head Tube angle -0.5 deg (slacker)
Wheel Base +3mm (lengthens by 0.120″)
CNC machined from 6061 T6 Aluminum
Suggested Cassette / Rear Derailleur Combos
Due to the new location of the rear axle, some cassette/rear derailleur combinations work better than others. Please follow our guidelines for optimum shifting performance. The derailleur’s “B” position must be set up so the outer derailleur cage clears the bottom of the modified drive-side dropout when in the highest gear.
Shimano Rear Derailleurs: You can use 11–32 and 11–34 MTB cassettes or 11–28 road cassettes.
SRAM Rear Derailleurs: You can use 11–32 and 11–34 MTB cassettes or road cassettes 11–26 or 11–28.
*** These dropouts must be installed on a bike as a set, although you may purchase them separately. ***
