I got a new bike, and I got to thinking... I've never been in a situation where I absolutely needed to use my quick release skewers before. Granted, I've had to take wheels off before, but I would have always had the time & the tools to use regular skewers if I needed them.
I've never had any components stolen off my bike (knock knock), but there have been 4-5 times when I've locked my bike up & had people eff with my wheels. While little more then an annoyance, I'd like for that to not happen again.
So I got to thinking:
1- Since wheels are usually the first thing to get stolen, why do all bikes seem to come with quick release skewers? Just seems to me that it helps out the theives.
2- Where could I find a more secure (and by secure, I'm assuming theives have gotten use to quick release components & leave their open ended wrenches at home) set of skewers?
