Spinergy Quick Release Diameter

I just got a call from my LBS that the knocking from my rear wheel wasn't from an iffy hub, but from quick releases that are the wrong diameter (too small).

I've searched this forum and also googled it for the past hour but I can't figure out what diameter quick releases I should be buying. The guy at the shop said he tried a Shimano one and it was still too small.

If anyone has any experiences with Spinergy quick releases or has any idea what the standard quick release diameter sizes are, please let me know.

Thanks!

Which Spinergy's? I have a set of RevX ones sitting here I could measure, but I kind of doubt that you're commuting on carbon wheels

might be a difference between 10mm, 12mm, 15mm and 20mm axles. 12mm and higher being MTB sizes.
just which set are you using?

Whoops. Sorry about that.

Spinergy Stealth PBO wheels. And no, I'm not commuting on them.

A guy dropped off a bike for a tune up with the same (Kind of) issue. He said the hubs had play in them. It was a mountain bike. It had thru axles. With 9 mm qrs in them.
