Adjusting the Rear Axel

From the title of the blog, I bet you would expect more bike postings... Here is the second one...
Two weeks ago, when starting the rear Axel moved. If the Axel is not securely fastened when you're really pushing the pedal, the Axel can shift forward (on the crank and chain side) and the wheel becomes bocked by the frame, like in the picture below.

Fixing it is quite straight forward, unscrew the axel, hold the wheel in the center while stretching the chain, and progressively securely fasten the Axel. A good guide on Bikes can be found here, although the author of said site prefers direct drive, my Kronan is a "Single speed" with a "Coaster Break".
