Look kg 381 owners....HELP!kgrider

I can't seem to tighten the allen bolts that hold the drop outs in place tight enough . The drive side bottom bolt won't grab tight enough and the bottom slips forward a hair.
Are there any bolts with a hex head that will grab. what can I do?

Thanks, eternal wheel alignment issue

I put Superglue on my dropouts, then tightened the bolts. They don't slip on me anymore.

I had that problem on my 281. I simply moved the dropouts forward as far as they would go on both sides and tightened the screws. I'm sure you could get a better metric screw from McMaster-Carr. I think a stainless steel hex socket head or a torx head would work better. The screws that came with the bike are cheap and it's easy to strip out the heex head as you probably found out.

This is a real problem. I have one side of the dropouts move forward, and the rare wheel was stuck. After a few adj. Now the srew is all worn out. I can't adjust it anymore. So one less thing to fool around
