    Are you pulling the wheel forward when you mash the pedals?

    It's not built yet..... have no idea.... I ordered the chain tugs from On One.... but not sure whether I'll need to install... from the sound of it maybe I should just give it a try without and see..... thanks...

    They are helpful for getting the wheel in the exact same spot after changing a flat or doing maintenance.

    I ride a slotted Inbred with ENO hub (bolt-on), and don't need a chain tug.
    When I use a XT hub with QR I use a Surly chain tug.
    I've noticed that I don't need a chain tug with the XT-QR hub as long as I use 44t front chainrings. (22t rear)
    My guess is you won't need a chain tug with the bolt-on Phil Wood hub, as long as you use chainrings 32 and up.
