    Disc on problematic rear wheel

    Hi,

    I'm fairly new to the SS world. I'm not sure if it's a global or personal problem, but every so often, my rear wheel is loosened up and moves forward, when I need to open the QR, and pull it back to place.

    I just got a pair of Magura Marta SL, and since I have nothing better to do with them, I figured it would be a nice addition to the bike. I'm wondering, however, if when the above happens, it won't break my rotor.

    Two questions, then:

    (1) Does this happen to everyone? Is there a way to solve the happy wheel issue?
    (2) If not, what do you do for disc brakes, if at all?

    Thanks,
    L

    Some quick release skewers simply don't generate enough force to hold the rear wheel stationary in horizontal dropouts. Generally speaking, heavier is better with regard to QR devices and SS. Another option for the rear is to convert either to a bolt-on axle or replace the quick release skewer with a skewer with hex bolts instead. You can get these much tighter.

    use a QR with steel faces

    Use a QR with steel faces. Generally sturdier and the steel face "bites" better into the dropout metal.
