- What Skewers ?
Got a pair on my singlespeed. They're much better action than hopes –
easier to do up, nice action, can be undone when tight without swearing.
Look shiny too.

Shimano here too. I'm still using some LX ones from '95 and they're just an unbeatable design in my book. You can pick up a pair of Deore ones for £10 I think.
I've tried the fancy Hope ones, but having the cam exposed to the elements made them stiffen up and I was never convinced that they clamped the wheel correctly.Posted 8 years agoNorthwindSubscriber
I've been fannying about with various ones, ended up back with my XTs. And for my commuter I'm going to end up using the Shimano ones that came with it, in 1991. They're possibly Exage, not sure. Whatever, even with the rust they're better than most modern ones.
Is there any merit to XTR at all? I've just switched to a front maxle so I figure a rear XTR would even out the bling somewhat…Posted 8 years ago
