    8mm trackends and mks chaintugs?

    so, my snazzy new peleton has 8mm trackends, and takes flatted axles, which is all very good, but the mks tugs are made for 10mm trackends, which is a bit of a problem. (the rear is spaced at 112mm, which, i'm pretty sure, means it was designed to take tugs).

    anyone know what the procedure is? do i just file 'em down 2mm, or is there some super-sekrit stash of 8mm tugs somewhere?

    welp redline chain tugs have work on both 12mm and 8 mm. but they would look ugly on your bike prolly.

    Is using a bit more torque on the axle nuts not an option?

    it totally is, but i'm slightly obsessive about some things, and since the frame appears to have been designed to have tugs, i want it to have tugs.
    (i know, i'm a freak).

    Hey, just an idea. I understand, I'm the same way about some things.
