- help with my tugnuts please!
I managed to bend the tensioning screw on my genesis io ss. Since they appeared to be made of cheese I decided to upgrade to some surly tugnuts… However I think these are essentially the wrong way round for my dropouts which have the opening at the rear. Whilst they fit in the dropouts the tensioning screw would push the wheel forwards. Does anyone make a tugnut for dropouts with the gap at rear of the dropout?
Or am I being a mong and missing something?Posted 10 years agoIvanDobskiMember
Doh! Yep, I was being my usual, mechanically inept self…
From the quick play I had with them I assumed that only the bolt moved through the solid tugnut which would indeed push the wheel. Now it's been pointed out it's obvious that the bolt actually pulls the tugnut back.
Thanks guys, much appreciated. I keep trying to do my own fettling but I'm obviously not that way inclined – which is an arse as I am very good at breaking stuff!Posted 10 years ago
