you have your IGH tuned up now? good.

Take some electrical tape and tape up to the stop nut on the adjustment. Then you know where your adjustment is if you need to take the tire all the way off to change a tube. On mine I can slide a tube in the brake side without disengaging the drive side. But when I changed tires I had to realign. When you mark with the tape you mark it in a specific gear, SA is second gear for a 5 speed. When you put it back together you need to have the adjustment made in that specific gear.

while it takes a bit longer than QR it shouldn't be a big deal. I have had one flat on the rear in the past year and I got over it. It is also not a big deal to make your won adjustments on the IGH, but the alignment mark is very hard to see during the day, so I use the tape method because most commuting this time of year is in the dark.
