the trick to adjusting the rear wheel is to close the quick release slightly so the rear of the frame makes contact with the hub, because you want the tensioners to push on the hub not the quick release, also I removed the springs from my qr axle
i made a slightly modified gheto version of this for now.
i took a 4mm socket head screw, and used a nut held in place with loctite. it seems to be holding so far. i am riding a different bike today, so i will get a chance to test it out one day this week. i also have the option of buying the jabbernuts, or my lbe will put in a bolt on axle for $25.
