    DT Swiss 240 with RWS (singlespeed)

    anyone using these on a horizontal drop out singlespeed?
    RWS X-12 or RWS thru bolt with 240s single speed rear hub?

    Picts would be RAD!

    Well, this is close:



    Standard-cassette 240s, with RWS 10mm thru on a Jabberwocky frame.

    I have SS 240's also but I got those with the end bolts. Either solution works to hold the wheel in place, but if I was choosing one it would be the bolts, just super-strong.

    240s with 10mm RWS on a Jabberwocky SS, and they work perfectly in my opinion.

    I just ordered the RWS as pictured above for my jabber to use with a Stans 3.30 hub. I was just wondering if anyone has had any problems with the wheel slipping on the left dropout when hard braking is applied.
    P.S I also got the connversion kit for my hub for 10mm.

    NEVER had the 10mm rear rws slip on my ss, i had it set up using a hope pro2 hub. my custom ss has paul comp horzontal dropouts and a slotted disc tab....never a problem!

    i like the newer ones with the alloy handles....not the older version with the "composite" or plastic handle....those kinda stripped easy if you applied too much torque when tightening.

    Awesome to hear! I have been worried about it slipping since I ordered it. Hopefully it will be fine then. I go the one with the alloy handle on it.
