Right I've hard the rear move in the track end twice now, does anyone else run the Surly hubs with the weird alan key track nuts? I just wonder whether they have a reputation for not gripping that well. I was just pulling away both times, the latest time I had a bus on my left, car on my right and cyclists behind filtering up. Fortunately all stopped and allowed me to get my bike to side of the road.
Also hoping to have a disc fork soon.
I hate those Allen key hubs. Never feels like you can crank them tight like you can with track nuts. Track nuts with a chaintug ftw. had a wheel move on a climb once only noticed on decsent nearly had a nasty crash.*
