    Q/R opinions

    I have always used bolts and do not have experience with Q/R's believe it or not. I am not concerned with ease of theft of components or the slight weight savings of bolts. I was just thinking of buying a few colorful doodads and Q/R's came to mind. So...

    What are peoples opinions on:

    1) Seat post Q/R's? Do the seat posts tend to slip anymore so than a bolt?

    2) Wheel Q/R's?

    I would probably get the Hope ones to match other items on my bike.

    Thanks

    I dont like wheel QRs, except for the Mavic ones. I replaced my rear QR skewer with a bolt on skewer, and the front is a TA...

    Why? For XC use they bind effectively enough...don't they?

    It's easy to tighten a seat skewer enough for the seat not to slip without it being hard to press down. Shouldn't have any trouble there.

    Depends on the bike/seatpost combo... it's not on my Klein! I can get it to not slip, but it's a bear to close. It's handy to have since it makes it easy to drop the seat for a more technical section if needed.

    I've never had a problem with wheel QRs for XC, and when you get a flat on the trail they're fantastic to have.

    Okay...great. I think I am going to get the HOPE QRs for my wheels and seat post in blue. It will add a little new life into my MTB.
