Ok, so I've seen tons of threads about these chain tugs and I finally decided to bite the bullet and buy them from John@Business Cycles. I have a KHS flite 100 and the tugs fit perfectly, no shaving of paint or anything, slipped right on there like it was made for the frame.
Anyways, My question is for those of you using these tugs, do you guys mount them on the inside or outside of the dropouts? I tried mounting theminside so I could get the MKS logo to show on the outside of the dropout, but had too much difficulty getting the whole wheel/tug assembly into the dropouts without possibly knocking the rear of the frame out of alignment since the vertical clearance of the dropouts was a tad too small and the tugs don't freely slide in the dropouts.
So, I decided to mount them on the outside of the dropouts and the logo doesnt show since they now face inside towards the hub, but it seems to hold just as well and the washer on the tugs actually keeps my track nuts from touching the dropout, thereby saving the paint.
Now my nuts are not touching the frame, is this going to affect my axle position as I ride? I'm guessing no since the chain tugs are pretty snug and secure I shouldn't pull the axle and the nuts are tightened down enough to prevent accidental loosening. I just feel rather paranoid about running the tugs this way since most of these applications I have seen have the tug mounted on the inside of the dropout rather than the outside. Is this setup going to affect my rear axle staying in place/staying on the bike?
ps: this originally started as a way to let Flite 100 owners that these tugs do work quite well with the dropouts
