Skewers aren't something I'd feel safe being cheap with



Why? Cheap doesn't necessarily mean poor quality.

I have a pair of £100 Tune skewers (33g) and a pair of £12 Lifeline skewers (44g). Both are of equal quality and have performed faultlessly with a big 107kg rider bunny-hopping potholes at 80kph...

I also have Zipp, Mavic & Shimano skewers, but they just sit in the spare parts bag.

I'd have been happy with that. Must have got just got unlucky. Will return.

Mine were the same weight as chris'

@ryanw when I say cheap I don't only mean $$$
I was using the word cheap as more of a phrase, my bad. When I hear "cheap ones from ebay" I think noname items from some dudes basement in china.


edit: I guess I could have also said I wasn't calling the Reynolds cheap. I'd just rather skimp on money elsewhere

M2 Racer QR's. Sorry, that's not very helpful!

I think I'm in the buying mode myself, as I've decided my M2 Racers have officially gotten "old." I'm currently eyeing the Tune DC130 or Extralite Streeters.

I didn't see Fairwheel's QR comparo noted. If you haven't already read it, check it out. If it's already linked, sorry for my poor reading comprehension!
