    Switch from solid axle Bolt on to QR wheelset??

    Anyone have any experience running X9 Hubs and 9mm QR on a Surly Karate Monkey horizontal dropout? am I going to have issues with the wheels sliding around in the drops or should i be ok? on my current setup i have the rear wheel slid almost all the way forward in the horizontal drops but they are a solid axle with bolts when all the way forward i do have slack in the chain but not enough for it to hop off the cog or ring.

    I do have a Tugnut chain tensioner with the QR adapter but prefer not to use it since I like to keep things clean and simple if possible.

    Thanks!

    Disregard... after my second cup of coffee I was able to search more effectively. Will try out the QRs and if they don't hold will utilize the tugnut with QR adapter.
