    Redline with tensioners and quick release

    I know this question gets asked a lot but here I go. Have a new Redline flight frame that we are building up with a standard wheel using QR currently in the rear. The concern is that the axle portion is only long enough that the frame rests on it and the tensioners will actually be on the QR shaft. This seems like the QR shaft would not be the ideal place for the tensioner to sit for support. I am sure this is common and maybe it works great but wanted to see what people were experiencing. I think the bolt on axle would be best but this may be ok too.

    My MC 29'er came w/ a bolt on rear axle. Maybe factory specs will help your decision...
    Either you rode today, or you didn't.

    I've been using the Surly Tuggnut w/ the qr insert (basically a washer w/ a smaller hole for the qr) for many many miles and have had no problems. With that config, I believe the qr is taking all the force, like you are asking about.
