Not as light as other standard cam-type options, but other than that, any feedback on these?

I haven't used them on road bikes, but have used them on mountain bikes.

They're really nice skewers, and the locking mechanism is great. I'd say the extra couple grams
is worth it for the piece of mind.

Sorry for digging this out from the grave... :oops:

I'm also looking at buying solid, reliable light "do-it-all" Ti skewers.

DTSwiss RWS look like they are what I'm looking for. Bonus points for being usable on a trainer for warm ups before races :beerchug: .

Louis :)

Bets skewers I ever had. Use it "religiously".

I'm waiting for payday to get new skewers .... I have read loads of forums and many say that one should not skimp on 2 things (skewers and pedals) .... the ones that are highly recomended by most are Dura Ace pedals and dura ace skewers .... a little heavier, but they say power transfer makes up for the few grams
