    surly tuggnuts

    I havent confirmed this but do tuggnuts work on short horizontal dropouts with the quick release adapter?

    i think Ernesto modified some to work with the surly dropouts in the picture, but i'm not sure how or if it worked with the QR adapters.

    Shouldn't the tuggnuts pull the wheel backwards and not forwards. When you step on the pedals the wheel naturally wants to move forwards. Aren't the tuggnuts there to prevent the wheel from moving forwards and for side to side wheel adjustment? I don't think you would need them in your case.

    I just found this picture to show what the OP is asking about. Like I said, pretty sure alls you need to do is file a flat area on the back end of the dropout

    he can still use them to pull the wheel back.
    kinda hard to see, but this is a tensioner on that same frame and it is pulling the wheel back.

    Dingdingding! I remember asking him because I was too stupid to figure that out on my own.

    thanks guys , now if I could get a picture of the other side of the tensioner(to show the filed of side) because I of course am also an idiot.

    Would those you sell I suck at riding work without filing?

    Ahh. That makes more sense. I was scratching my head there for a while trying to figure out how those would work.
