    Rear hub skewer?

    So i will be using a regular cassette free hub body with an ss cog and spacers in a soma juice. The wheels have QR skewers but I want something a little more secure in the rear.

    Kind of new to this.

    What can fit that will hold in place?

    Profile Designs make some nice bolt-up 9mm axles. They're spendy, but secure.
    Universal Cycles sell an $18 option that look like they'd work just fine, too.

    A nice steel closed cam skewer should get the job done.

    I use a DT Swiss with my El Mar. Worth the money - IMO. You can tighten it up and loosen easily, but more snug than any QR out there, and don't need extra tools for a thru bolt.

    I have them on my Karate Monkey and they work fine. I also use Shimano XT skewers on track ended bikes with zero issues. No chain tug needed.

    Using a Bontrager QR that looks like a chromed shaft. Shimano cassette, Sinz tuggers, both sides, on my Klein Fervor (Horiizontal dropouts). No slip.

    Before that I used a Mavic, with a black steel shaft, when I was using a tensioner, no tuggs. Due to the thick dropouts, I've used the longest QR's in my stable.

    Stay away from Ti.
