    Slider & nutted axle incompatible?

    I was just about to buy a Motobecane Outcast frame on eBay when I came across this excellent pic on the 29er forum of the slider which raised some questions.

    Anyone having any issues with this type of slider? What I'm concerned about is slippage & also alignment so the tire/rim remains centered in the frame.

    The other thing I noticed is that at one end of its range it would be very difficult to use with a nutted axle. Anyone successfully using this type of slider with a nutted axle?

    Maybe track nuts might work.

    Didn't know what they were so had Google shop them.

    That's an excellent idea.

    I'm still holding out for a complete SS 29er though as much as I'd like to get back into bicycling. But that one is definitely on my short list.
