    Will a 130mm hub on a cross check slip?

    Has anyone tried a 130mm hub on a cross check? 135mm hubs compatible with road cassettes are rare. Also, has Shimano lightened the clamping force of its skewers? It says "less quick release axial force". That is not good sounding.

    I have run 3 different 130mm hubs on mine. The Gnot-rite spacing is supposed to run both 130 & 135.

    I can't claim any knowledge on Shimano's latest marketing gimmick.

    surly is steel, it'll work. My only concern is slipping of the axle, as the OP alluded to. I'd see if you can get some sort of tug nut on there (or similar) to keep the drive side from sliding on you. Took me 3 tries and I swear, I'm bending my steel frame, before the hub would stop sliding on me.

    Oh, and what is up with that new 135mm fh-cx75 ultegra disc hub? How would it compare in quality to a dura ace hub? Does it take 11 speed road cassettes?

    Also watts888, did you use closed or open cam?

    At first, open, and it didn't work at all. First time I stepped on the pedals, they moved Swapped out to an older shimano style internal cam, and it worked after I really clamped down on it. I don't know what will and won't work with a cross check from one of these chain tensionsers, but Surly's description says they have the adjuster screws included.
