Re: Here is a great way to eliminate a need for a chain tensioner
Good point. It isn't a quick release axel, it is a bolted axel. It has female threads and a good size cap head allen screw goes into it on both sides. It clamps down really hard. Also I don't think much torque will be applied to that part of the hub. The torque first goes to the outer casing of the hub then spokes then rim then tire. Also the fact that inbetween the outer casing and the bolts/cam are the bearings which eliminate most of the friction/torque?
