    Lizard's dropouts

    I have a '07 Chameleon with horizontal dropouts and no matter how hard I tighten the rear QR, on every gnarlier ride or jump or even if I ride down on couple of steps the rear wheel always goes excentric almost touching the left chainstay. How do you guys fix this?

    No, that's the problem. 9-speed cassette at the back.

    DT swiss RWS QR are pretty good, they seem to clamp up nice n tight, or maybe go to a bolt through axle

    Yes, DT's RWS system works well as mentioned, and if you want to go the standard QR route, I've heard Shimano XT's work well too.

    I've got Chris King Funbolts on mine, and trust me, they aren't going anywhere.

    My 2006 Chameleon gets kind of picky in the rear too, is that normal for this bike or is it the the horozontal drop outs or could it be me
    2007'ish Heckler and 2006 Chameleon
    If anyone needs the help of a prototype/custom machinist let me know.
