I've got one, and have a pair of horizontal rear dropouts from The Bike Hut. But I have a real problem stopping the rear axle slipping and losing the chain - you want to see my knees!!

Has anyone found a chain tug, or similar, that works??

Cheers

Gil_m who runs the bike hut is a member on here - why not ask him what he recommends. Maybe a nice old steel QR?

I started using chain tugs on my horizontal drop-outed Unknown Fastback for the same reason.

I bought these:

and although I only did about 40 miles testing before taking it off the road to build up properly they seem to do the job very well.

secret_squirrel; I've got bolts on the rear hubs, but they still move. I might drop Gill a line though.

kingoffootball; cheers. I'll look at that tonight (ebays blocked at work)
