i have to agree with castron. i used the original - gnutti - quick release,with no problems.
those even felt more substantial and,they were over 30 years old
i looked on the sheldon brown thingy this evening and,he calls these -boutique - skewers.
and he generally gives them low ratings and,says they look good but dont compare with the sealed cam kind.
im gonna see if i can find some campy or, shimano or, better yet , GNUTTI , Since that is what was originally on there.
i cant use the original rear,because when the front tire - tacoed - the rear skewer BENT.
STRANGLY ENOUGH ,the front skewer,where the wheel bent,is perfectly fine. dont ask me how. i dunno.
