    Chain tugs if you can fit them. You do have horizontal rear facing dropouts? The chain tugsrecommended here are the MKS ones sold by hubjub, though the last ime I looked they didn't have any in stock. Give them a week or two and they should be back in stock.
    I've added a signature to prove it is still possible.

    More force I use QR's no probs on my fixed.
  • You do have horizontal rear facing dropouts?

    No he may have track ends ! Track ends are not drop outs, as the wheel won't "drop out" of them ! :shock:
  • Have you got decent grippy track nuts?
  • got myself a big spanner seem to have done the trick
    thanks for the help
