    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?

    There's something about those long grueling climbs that gets my front end all stiff... And I'm not talking about lockout...

    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.
