You really don't need it that tight. All its doing is holding the cassette on. Its not structural or anything.

I rode the Full Tilt Boogie Mk2 just now. Oh man. I'd forgotten what a rocketship that thing is. Stiff. Light(ish). Comfortable. The ONLY fly in the ointment is it got ordered without bottle cages. I either have to be a fred and wear a camelback or shove bottles in my jersey pockets. Oh well. Its a small sacrifice to ride something that nice.

Note to Askel: its not a very good long-distance gravel road bike. Too stiff thru the fork/front end. Fan-farging-tastic short-distance/race bike tho.

Buddy of mine is coming over for some help working on his Stumpjumper. He should be bringing beer and pizza.

I'm a cyclist that rides motos, not a moto rider that rides bicycles.
