A.D.S. Adjustable Dropout System; this exclusive Identiti frames feature allows the rider to horizontally move the rear axle position to set chain tension, which is a real bonus if you are running single speed or perhaps a Rohloff Speedhub. However, not only is this simple and secure using the integral threaded 'chain tugs', but as the axle moves, so does the Disc mount and the gear hanger... keeping everything in perfect line... all of the time. Furthermore, as the dropouts themselves are almost vertical, there is no risk of wheel torque slippage in the dropout under heavy load, which means you can even use QR skewers on a Single Speed set-up.
Nor do you have to consider removing the Disk brake caliper if you are removing the wheel, as the wheel comes out down and forwards, not backwards. Finally, because removing the wheel doesn't require any messing with the chain tension adjustment, when you fit the wheel back in...it goes back in perfect chain tension... just as it was before you removed it.
A.D.S. works 'perfectly' with Derailleur or hub gears , or no gears... NOW..it's up to the rider ! gears or no gears...??
The other final bonus point for the Identiti ADS is that all of the 'vulnerable' parts of the dropout (gear hanger, disc mounts, axle slots, main fixing bolts threads etc..) are all part of the ADS dropouts - and therefore, easily replaced in event of a 'problem'.
The Race steed choice for 2004 National Juvenille 4X champion Tom Dowie.

It can be run with discs or Vs, 24" or 26" wheels, Derailleur gears, hub gears or Single Speed... all possible, in any combination.
Identiti have made a few tweaks, but in all honesty, it is hard to better the existing 2001/2 design, and as MBUK magazine noted when reviewing the recently added 2002 XL version in June "it wasn't broken, so why fix-it"... (it scored 5/5 - top marks).
