Just putting my inbred back to single speed from alfine for a while. My old ss hub has a standard q/r skewer but I've an unused pitlock / allen key style rear skewer lying around. Anyone know if these are these any more secure under load than a normal q/r? Bike is inbred slot drop out.
single speeds; quick release skewer v pit lock skewers
Stick a solid nutted axle in.
I've never had a problem with QR. Shimano ones are best. However, I know people who have had probs and say the hex key ones are an improvement. A bolted axle is obviously the most secure but then you may need a new hub and you'll have to carry spanners
I use standard QR with a Surly tug nut
