    130 or 135mm non-disc rear 9sp casette hub with nutted axle. Or bolt-up. Or...

    Hi. I have a problem with rear wheel on my Surly Cross check. When gear is little to high, rear wheel slides in the dropouts, goes of the line and tire rubs chainstay.

    So, i decided to use nutted rear axle hub, but I can't find any... Can anyone suggest some models, so I can start googling it ?

    Or, suggest a rear skewer, that holds wheel REALLY TIGHT.

    Thanks.

    Shimano QR skewers have the best clamping power. You can also find "security" bolt-on skewers.

    For hubs, most Shimano hubs can be fit with a solid bolt-on axle.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    Thanks, but can you suggest something with sealed cartridge bearings ?
    And about skewers... Just any shimano, or specific ones ? alivio, deore, xt, xtr, slx?

    Chris King with Fun Nuts.

    Any skewer mid-level or higher.

    I got Ultegra hubs that are going on their second decade...cup and cone bearings hold up just fine and you can convert the Ultegra (130mm spaced) to a solid bolt on axle easily.

    Could always go Hope Pro 3 Mono hubs with a 10mm thru bolt...more than Shimano but less than King
