Dropout Thickness Inspection

Over time, the textured contact point surfaces of the front wheel hub and quick release skewer wear out the contact surfaces of the fork dropouts. Inspect and measure the thickness of the dropouts every 6 months or 100 hours. Ensure that any point on the surface is above the minimum specification of 1/4 inch, or 6.20 mm.

 Dropout  Measure Dropout

Replace the lower leg assembly if the dropout thickness measures at the minimum specification, or less.
