    King SS hub and chain tugs?

    Hi all:

    Just bought a King SS hub and built it up. I'm used to using a chain tug with my old Surly hubs, but this King hub has a 19.5mm axle (too fat for my redline tugs).

    Does anyone know of a tug that'll work with the Kings? I know I don't *need* a tug, but I like using a drive side one to dial in the chain tension juuuust right.

    Thanks.

    When I went to a king hub, I just drilled out my tugs to fit over the axle. I haven't had any problems with them.
