Moving away from troll posts, I'm wondering if those of you who own the Whipshot had issues with your rear Thru-Axle lock disengaging while riding?

I was out on the trails yesterday, and twice the lock disengaged and the skewer was slowly coming off loose. Granted some stretches of the trail were pretty nasty (I think I rattled 2 fillings loose!). The first time I felt the bike handled like crap before I realized what was going on. I'm new to Thru-Axle, but I suspect it's not supposed to happen!

With all that said, I'd only used the bike to commute until yesterday, but I really like how it rides on the trails. I was also pleasantly surprised how grippy the stock Griffo tires are. Loud as heck on the pavement, but I've only lost grip twice, and it was 45 degree climbs with thick loose gravel.

Heres some pics of my ride:
