I have a SS conversion that I made out of an 197X Raleigh Grand Prix frame that was rescued from a dumpster. I put QR skewers on it at first, because that is what I had lying around. Since I often lock it up on the mean streets of Philly, I thought I would be better off with some bolt on skewers, and ordered these from Nashbar.
I put the front one on with no trouble. Then I tried the rear. I tightened it by hand as much as a could. Then, I tried to finish the job with a hex wrench. I cannot get it tight. I turn the wrench, and it turns the bolt on the opposite end along with the skewer. I tried holding the bolt, but I wasn't strong enough to prevent it from turning, even if I used a wrench.
