Quick release skewer
Does anyone make like a heavy duty quick release skewer that wont bent as easily and help strengthen the rear axle?
Never had the need for a "heavy duty QR skewer". Try your local hardware store. Take your wheel with you and have a bolt & nut fitted to it? If you want to keep it QR then get a wingnut.
