Boreas has horizontal dropouts and I have never had the wheel slip. Aluminium frame and Ultegra QR's and I can't see how the wheel can move. I Never do the QR's up real tight either--just tight enough to keep the wheel in place. In other words--Never overtightened.

It may not be my favourite form of drop out but it works.

But as you can see- The wheel is set far forward in the dropouts so I can't see how it can move.

But as to the bike being Trustworthy- It has to be- otherwise the mechanic would get the sack.
