    Will a Magic Pie v5 work in a 145mm dropout?

    Can they be used in a 145mm rear dropouts? Is there enough axle to work with that extra width and get it all centered up?

    Hi Nozrydr,

    Pulled your question out of the Knowledge Base...


    It's been said that the maximum distance that one could build up too is 145mm. That is with the rear mount model with the 135mm recommended dropout... These are the only dimensions I've seen on it.





    Looks like the actual axle length is 200mm, but not sure if it's exactly the same on both sides. Looks to be close. See if that is enough for you to work with.

    The front mounted motor's axle is only ~168mm long, just for reference.


    Regards,

      As in... with the proper amount of shims, and/or spacers. You could install a Magic Pie V5 into a drop-out of up to 145mm (perhaps a bit more...?) in distance between the two sides. After taking in account the widths of the actual drop-outs, any torque arms, derailleur mounting brackets, and axle nuts... before you'd run out of axle length.

        I have a Magic Pie on the rear of our tandem trike. It has 145 mm dropouts. It works fine with spacers to take up the extra width. There is plenty of axle left to go even wider.
