    Anyone using a chain tug? Got any pix?

    Not sure I have a problem as of yet, could just be the paint but the frame Mfr suggested getting a chain tug if my rear axel starts slipping alot. I mean, I know I have the bolt tight but I thought I did when I went out on my first ride.

    So, is anyone using these and if so, do you have a picture of how they are used? Been looking online but haven't found any yet.

    Thanks

    Surly Tuggnut, installed. Doubles as a bottle-opener.

    the surly ones are cool but pricey

    a bmx one will do the same job (sans bottle opener) for around a quarter of the price or less

    Look at the pic Joe posted.

    The axel or skewer goes through the tug... and the back of the tug has a stop that rests against the frame (on the dropout) -you can just makeout the stop at the top/back of the tug.

    Turn the screw and the stop slides forward or backward controlling the chain tension.

    So, if I have a bolt on, the axel goes through the hole that is available in the pic above or where the current bolt is?

    Either one depending on your chains length.
