    Skewers

    Hey everybody! I am looking for a set of light skewers (by which I meand 100 g and lighter). I have a full suspension 33 pound bike and need strong skewers. I have read that some skewers are not designed for suspension bikes, is this true?

    At this time I am looking at Salsa, Hope, Sette Ti or Suspension, Kore Elite and TUNE AC16+17.

    Well the not designed for a suspension bike part is BS. However you'll want to read this article before you buy any of those fancy schmancy skewers

    Thanks Raiyn, I've read the article before, very useful information - just as usual from Sheldon Brown. I'm still not sure about the skewers, but I might just go with Sette - a reasonable price and a low weight (considering that my skewers weigh 130g compared to Sette at 101g).
