Make sure the cams are touching the snail cam bolts. & are equally in line with each other.

I much prefer the tugs there much better but don't fit my frame unless modified.

But my monty snail cams which i run on the outside of the frame serve me well I,ve notice he little notches keep them well placed.

Maybe you should try notching them??? Just a idea mate.

yeah thanks the snail cams are notched ...for some reason they keep slipping though which im not ammused about,also becaus their notched i cant quite get the tension right ! .........nevermind :ermm:

just a thought .

make sure when you tighten the bols up make sure the snailcams still have pressure on them otherwise they will move and then letting the wheel slip back and move.

i have had this problem before.

When you have got your desired tention, tighten up the non drive side axel bolt first. That way is doesnt move the hub and loosening your chain.

have the cams rotating with the bolt :S so when you tighten it the rotation doesn't make the cam notch down, it should just force into the cam bolts. can't explain this well at all :P
