    Tugnut necessary?

    I've been riding my Surly 1x1 through the last two winters and a bit during the summer as well and have never had the rear axle slip(yet). Just wondering how many other 1x1 riders are not using a tugnut? I've been thinking of picking a set up just for a piece of mind while out on the trails this winter.

    Thanks all

    I use a tugnut on my fixie's drive side, as well as on my Rock Lobster's horizontal drops. Gives me peace of mind.

    Maybe

    For the past two years I never had any problems with this happening on my karate monkey. Since I screwed a cog on the disk brake side, I have had the wheel slip forward twice now. Even after really cranking the nuts. I have no Idea why its slipping now but I too might have to get the tugnut.
