It is impossible to drink a gallon of milk in an hour.

I have done so.

Therefore, I can do the impossible.

@Blam, I certainly will not delete your comment. It would be an abuse of my mod privileges. And more importantly, disagreement is important. None of us know everything and we all get stuff wrong once in a while. If no one disagreed, we'd never make any progress. I'd be interested in hearing why you disagree, i.e., what you think could could go wrong by using QR's and Tuggnuts, but we should probably move the discussion to chat before it gets too long.

@Blam The grip isn't so important as long as you have something to keep the wheel from moving. I've actually ridden my fixie with the bolts loose and not realized it because my chain tensioner was keeping the wheel firmly in place. The only thing that clued me in was that it finally unscrewed a millimeters or so and was rattling against the frame. I have no idea how long it was loose before it finally unscrewed enough for me to hear it.

@Blam the chain stops it from slipping the other direction when braking. If the chain is loose enough that the wheel can slip backward, it's too loose and needs to be tightened.
