Mmmm...I would much rather have bolt-up but maybe I have to play with what I have got.....question is...has anybody run track-end with QR (or bolt) skewers. Did you use a tuggnut...any alternatives to Surly with their 6mm adapter.

I currently use a single DMR chain tug with a Halo bolt up skewer and it works really well.

Lighter than a bolt up too 8)

From BITD & BMX I only used one chain tug.

Adjust tug to tension chain then align wheel - tighten and away you go
:D

Shimano Skewers. Sheldon recommends them, and so do I. Clamp a lot tighter than Ti!
I wouldn't fancy aligning the wheel without tug nuts though...

Saw the frame 8) shim skewers might not look the best. What about steel salsa's best boutique skewer IMO. MKS tug nuts are nice and neat too.

I have gone for Halo bolt-up skewers and a salsa tug...not my favourite item...but I'll have a go. MKS are nice agree.

So...just need some bars now.....risers :D

Edit...before I get a wise comment :wink: ...all I need to buy are some bars...everything else on it's way

Not had it rolling yet but I'm sure it will be fine.
