    My brain just can't wrap around how those drop outs are strong enough, but they just keep working.

    I have a Morpheus vimana and I can say they are just as strong as any other slope style bike. They are held by groves in the frame that are conected to the matching groves on the dropout so they don't shift they are also held by 2, 5mm bolts on each side that are connected to a metal plate that hold the drop out tight to the frame

    Stoutly bolted, but how do those aluminum drop outs not bend behind the frame? I've done time as a machinist and it just doesn't make sense to me.

    You might not realize it but the dropout is around 7 inches in length and 1.5 in width but there is only about 2.5 inches of it that is not attached on the frame
