I just had my 9C axle shoulder completely smear and then wedge apart my fork ends. THis is because of the small surface area and material types. Even the axle shoulder itself is starting to smear back! I just need a more reliable way to increase shoulder surface area than a washer that eventually will flatten and flake out on me
I use nord locks and have been happy with them.
