I need to know what the general feeling is to using chain tugs on a SS with horizontal dropouts and a bolt on White Ind. hub (not the eccentric one).
I have been using a Surly tug so far but with a 33/18 gearing I just can't get the chain adjustment right without losing a lot of the available adjustment the Surly tug has even on a new chain, which means I'm flying through chains.
I've tried a full half link chain but that thing was way too noisy!
I'm now running a single half link in a regular 1/8 chain but still lose a lot of initial adjustment space in the dropouts.
I guess the question is, do I actually need a tug or can I just bolt it up with no slippage even on the hills?
