    Protecting Wheels

    I've heard stories of people trying to steal wheels and skewers, I was just wondering where I could find skewers that have like a lock/key.
    I've seen them before, I just don't know where to look or where I can order them.

    You know all that money we spend on nuclear weapons and defense each year, trillions of dollars, correct? Instead -- just play with this -- if we spent that money feeding and clothing the poor of the world -- and it would pay for it many times over, not one human being excluded -- we can explore space together, both inner and outer, forever in peace.

    somebody at work has them on his multi-thousand $$ commuter. They do look nice. One problem is that Peter White doesn't recommend them for horizontal dropouts, which does make sense to me.
