    I think it's a mistake that they don't have a slider system for Lurcher. I realize additional cost is probably the reason, but personally I'd be willing to shell out 100 bucks more to have proper sliders.

    Heres what I have: Halo Hex Key Bolt-On Skewers in Tree Fort Bikes QR Skewer (mtn) (cat427)

    Heres the MTBR thread on them. Halo Bolt-On Skewers

    They work great for me. No slipping. They have a little tab that lets you tighten them down nicely. And they come in different colors!!!

    Iam using the Hadley 10mm and added a surley tug for good measure. I have had a few bikes with sliders and thought this bike was going to be a pain but have found it easier with less creaks than any other set up.

    I am running my Lurcher SS but have CK bolts in the back, so no slipping. It's a great bike.

    Here is mine.
    My Lurcher  Single Speed-lurcher.jpg

    Frame+fork+brake set are new, all other parts are used or old ones. The wheelset is a quite heavy set (~2kg), set up as ghetto tubeless with Yellow Tape and Stan's valves.
    Not the final setup, I plan to change the wheelset, handlebar, grips, saddle...

    Nice Lurcher....

    The problem with single speed builds is that no matter what you think there never done. I said mine was done but I have a Magura TS8 R on the way as well as DT Swiss 240s hubs/am classic 101 rims/wheelsmith spokes. I'm going to order some Race Face Next SL cranks and a carbon seat post....

    There never done.

    Now its 100% done... They are never done....

    The wheels are now DT Swiss 240s IS Hubs on American Classic 101 rims with Wheel Smith Spokes using red alloy nipples. The Fork is a Magura TS8r tapered, 15mm thru axle reduced to 80mm of travel.

    19 pounds 9 oz. as shown.

    A bike Darth Maul would ride.

    Some notes.
    In march, I switched to 2x10 gears because of this year's trainings and race preparations. I used mainly with the rigid fork (awesome!) except for one race in Austria.
    Now I have converted back to SS, gear is 32x21 now, only because of the available range of fine-tuning for the chain tension. With this, the range of rear wheel adjustment can be used more or less. (Too bad, but simply I could not install the 32x20...)
    I also tried to install the 33x21 but that is also not OK, I can't use the whole range of adjustments for the rear wheel. In this situation, I had issues with my Surly Chain Tug as well. (Maybe a half-link would be a possible solution?)

    I have 32t and 33t chaninrings for the front and 18t, 20t, 21t cogs for the rear. Could you guys suggest me which combinations should work best, where the range of real wheel adjustment is the widest for the Lurcher?
    Should I try the 34x21 or maybe 34x22?

    Here is a picture taken from my Lurcher SS. Gears 32x21 so on flat, I have to spin like a crazy. On the other side I can climb quite steep climbs.
