hey has anyone tried putting an autobike setup on a cruiser? I would think it would be a nice setup. you know lace it into a vintage wheel. i guess you would have to weld on the derailleur mount or do they mount on the axle?

On bikes with no derailluer hanger you would use a small
bolt with a special nut shaped to fit into the drop out.
The special nut is rounded on the end to the same shape as the rear of the drop out slot and has a flange to prevent it from pulling through the drop out. Check out
www.sheldonbrown.com and you will likely find an illustration.
