    Gnot Boost KM - Want to go SS with 148 rear - tugg or snugg?

    Hello. Looking for some help with figuring out a solution for my new KM. I want to run it SS. I will use a 148x12 rear hub. I will use Surly's axle - the one that came with the frame.

    I prefer to run some sort of tuggnut-type thing...I don't trust the bolt on axle.

    Who has done what I am trying to do? Did you have to use the snuggnuts (currently out of stock)? Or were you able to use the OG tuggnuts? Any photos?

    All help appreciated. Thanks!

    I built one up and used the original Tuggnut, I just had to drill it out.

    Good idea...tho I hate to buy something new just to mod it.

    But...I am impatient so that might be what I do. No telling at all about the ETA for the Snuggernuts.

    I have a ss kit off a new km that I may be interested in selling, snuggnut, 17t cog, and spacer kit with lock ring barely any miles. I converted my wifes to 11-42 nx drivetrain off mine.
