I wanted to see what others experience is with rear tandem skewers, especially if being used with a bicycle trailer.
We recently got our brand new tandem wheel back from Velocity. It is a Velocity Chukker with 48h drill and DT 14g spokes. I had wanted the Velocity Psycho but they were out of stock when I needed to get this done.
Long story short, I'm having some problems with tandem skewers. I can't find the skewer I always used to use. Instead I can only find the Chariot skewer and an older Shimano tandem skewer. Both are slipping allowing the wheel to go askew. I don't want to mount the new wheel until I can resolve the slipping issues with these skewers.
Bike is an aluminum Cannondale 140mm dropout spacing.
What skewers have you had problems with, and what skewers absolutely "lock down" a tandem wheel, even if using a Chariot trailer (hitch attaches to skewer)?
