This might rank as the dumbest question of the day, but how far back does the wheel/axle need to be in the dropout to be considered 'safe'? As of now the only way I can get good chain tension is to not have my wheel all of the way back. I can see space behind the axle. Does the axle have to be totally seated , rearward, against the frame? This is for semi-vertical dropouts.

Thanks,

Are you using "bolt on" hubs as opposed to quick release?
