Hoping someone has an answer as this is driving me mad.
I have a surly ogre with horizontal dropouts and the rear wheel will not stay in place in the dropouts. I'm currently running a Halo QR skewer as I have in the past with no issue.
What do I need to do to put the power down without the wheel going off on its own?
Is there a bit of oil/muck on the surface of the dropouts? Give em a good clean and maybe check the knurling on the qr isn’t worn away?
Then just throw the halo skewer away, buy a shimano and never worry about it again....
I gave the knurling and the dropouts a good clean, by Shimano QR, you mean the ones with a separate arm to tighten rather than the integrated Halo one that tensions as you fold it over?
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
