Product Description

The current DMR Sidekick, Trailstar and Exalt frames all use a Swopout dropout specific to DMR frames.

This allows you to change your dropout to your desired type on any of the frames

Vertical Swopout (Standard)

Each of the Sidekick, Trailstar or Exalt comes equipped as standard with this Swopout.

A 10mm vertical dropout with mech hanger. A direct replacement for your standard Swopout if you have an unfortunate stack.

12mm Bolt Through Swopout

Everyone likes a responsive feel to the rear of their bike. A bolt through hub is the ultimate way to achieve this.

This Swopout will allow you to run a 12/135mm bolt through axle on the rear. DMR have the hubs to match on the hubs page. This setup is the choice of the pros.

You can also upgrade the bolt through to a Maxle should you still which to run a quick release system, see the next Swopout along.

10mm Horizontal Swopout

For those you like single speed, for winter riding or prevention of wrecking expensive gears in a stack.

This Swopout will allow you to run a 10mm hub single speed.

If you need to keep things more secure than you quick release skewer will allow, check out the Chain Tug Mech Hanger for Swopout.

14mm Horizontal Swopout

Some of us play and ride hard, and need the equipment to mach.

If you are the kind of person who hits the trails fast and hard, then consider a 14mm rear hub.

This Swopout will allow you to run the super strong 14/135mm axle hub, DMR have the hub to mach this in our hubs section - single speed, again eliminating the risk of damage to gears.

Maxle Bosses

ONLY FOR USE WITH 12MM BOLT THRU SWOPOUT. These bosses bolt onto the 12mm Swopout allowing you to run a lighter and more user friendly Rockshox Maxle quick release axle with your DMR/Kinesis frame.

Occasionally, without notice, manufacturers change product design and/or specifications.

Derailleur/Mech Guide

What are derailleurs and mechs?

Derailleurs and mechs are two names for the same thing – the parts of your drive train that move the chain between chainrings for the front derailleur/mech and between the cassette cogs for the rear derailleur/mech.

Who needs a derailleur or mech?

Not all bikes have derailleurs, but if your bike has conventional gearing rather than singlespeed or hub gears, you will have at least a rear derailleur. These parts are exposed and somewhat vulnerable to damage, so you may need to replace them if this happens.

What are the choices?

Your choice will largely depend on what is compatible with the rest of your drivetrain, but there are different options for road and mountain bike, by the big three manufacturers, Shimano, SRAM and Campagnolo.

What should I buy with them?

If you’re replacing a front or rear mech, you may need to replace some other parts of your drivetrain as well, for compatibility or because you want them to wear together. These might include the chainrings, rear cassette or chain.

Anything else?

It’s not just compatibility with your other components you need to consider with a mech replacement. Derailleurs also have different fittings for various frame compatibilities, including braze-on fittings and a bolt-on collar.
