    Recommend a chain tug compatible with Paul WORD hub.

    Hi all, have been running a WORD hub on my steel Inbred and last night at Ray' Indoor bike park on a super steep climb we call the corkscrew, bam! Wheel cocked sideways, chain fell off and I nearly did a backward somersault.
    The frame has horizons dropouts or track ends, and until now I haven't used anything to hold the wheel in place, just kept the bolts tight! When I first installed this wheel, I wasn't able to use my trusty Redline branded chaintug as the axle diameter was too large, so I always check the bolts before and after every ride...often the chain tension was a bit loose, but now it lets the wheel slam the tire into the chain stay a lot, and it did it a 2nd time shortly afterward. I had to be careful not to torque too hard on the many short climbs.
    Anybody run WORD hub have a chaintug device they can recommend?

    Just get the appropriate sized drill bit and drill out the cheapo Redline tug. No cost and an immediate solution.

    MKS chain tugs are pretty good

    Perhaps have a look at some BMX offerings.
    I don't know why,... it's just MUSS easier to pedal than the other ones.

    very simple; if it slipped your bolt wasn't tight enough. also maybe rough up the paint a little if it is a new frame so the bolt has better purchase. you don't need a chaintug...

    keep singlespeeds simple.
