I was riding a rental 620 and lost both rear axle nuts.

wow no way, it sounds like somebody screwed up and forgot to tighten the nuts. I've never heard of that happening otherwise.
scary

wow.....yep you can safety wire the nuts.......but someone did not tighten up the nuts.......I would be quite pissed about this on a rental.
Audibly and Visually pissed at the shop! I would be pissed with extreme prejudice......and ask to see the guy who last had a wrench on that axle and punch him in the face.....
You are lucky you were going slow.....
I would not call that common, but since there is vibration it is always a good idea to do a visual
before riding.....think of it like an airplane.....the precentage for harm if something fails or falls off on a bike is heavily biased
towards an unhappy outcome.

Wasn't there a previos thread like "Too much sueing going on"?
I don't think it applies here!
