    9 Speed quick-release skewer size

    Hi all, looking into buy a vintage pair of Campagnolo QR skewers, the only thing that concerns me is if it would be able to fit the 9 speed spacing of my bike, the guy tells me that the distance from the end of the non-removable "nut" to the end of the rod length is 155(ish) mm now I know the spacing on my bike is 130mm, and the width of the dropouts are 5mm I think.... so that would make it 140mm outside to outside, but I don't know how big the other nut is and if it would fit. Any input is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

    This may be OK for you, but I suspect it's more likely for a 126mm hub. 5mm is a bit skimpy for dropouts which are usually nearer to 7 or 8mm thick. So you have 130+15 (7.5mm dropouts) = 145 leaving 10mm for the nut. That may be slightly to the low side, but it'll be OK. Worst case they'll only be short 4mm, since they're longer than 120s would be.
