    Jabber and quick release/chain tension

    Hi,

    I am building up this frame, and trying to decide on hubs. I am leaning towards a hub that only comes in a quick release version, so am wondering if the Jabber chain tensionares help with disc brake grab. It looks like they would work great for chain pull, but how would I stop the potential of the wheel sliding back on the brake side (again, assuming quick release hubs)? Thanks.

    I run a DT 240 with a 10mm RWS QR on my Jabber. Perfect in my opinion.

    Pick up an XT quick release skewer...you won't regret it. I have been riding a Jabber for a season so far with no slippage at all.

    Same as above. I bought XT skewers for $20 and no problems.
