I've had enough of track nuts on my Spesh Tricross SS. I had the bike in fixie mode this morning, 5 other commuters lined up as the traffic lights turned green. Cue commuter racing;
-explode like a coiled spring to the front of the accelerating bunch
-my nuts slip
-wheel gets jammed against the chainstay
-wheel locks up
-bike comes to a abrupt halt
-and so does the bus, thankfully, not more than half a metre from my back wheel
-look bloody ridiculous whilst carrying said bike on shoulder to somewhere inconspicuous
-phoned missus to bring a 15mm spanner in the car as I couldn't even walk anywhere with the bike
I also use the bike for off roading with a normal freewheel so I am forever turning the wheel round. On my Inbred I've a QR axle and Tugnut which works great.
Is it possible to swap the solid 120mm axle for a hollow one and fit a QR + chaintug for reduced faff and peace of mind?
