Hmm… Zefal QR skewers.. Are they magnet proof???? ( to move the bearing )

So every time you want to take the wheels out you have to turn your bike upside down and scratch cockpit items and the saddle. Not liking that idea.

@ jd-bouy errr – isn’t that how most people change an inner tube? I think those QRs are a great idea. evil wheel thieving scrotes won’t figure it out and give up (the longer it takes to nick something the more likely they will give up)

I really like those anti-tealeaf skewers. Price?

In my experience most chavs don’t understand that QRs are meant to be folded over to lock them, they just grab hold of the lever and unscrew it……….

reckon those QRs look good, but i wonder how freely the bearing will move after a winter of wet salty roads… would be a right bugger if it got jammed or corroded…

The Zefal skewers aren’t great. At last year’s Zyro show the guy doing the demonstration asked one of the audience to try and open them, so the guy from a bike shop walked up and undid it by twisting it no problem.
Which of these bikes do you aspire to own next?
