Bob Yak Skewers
I recently purchased a very lightly used bob yak off of a nice lady on craig's list. the frame looks like it was never used, and came with the liner bag. the only problem I had was that the skewer that she had with it was a mountain bike skewer as far as I could tell. she bought it separate and in the picture it had a dude on a mountain bike towing the bob. I dont know how much a new skewer will cost, probably 20 to 30 dollars. but I was really just thinking of cutting a quarter inch off of one of the ends because thats all the slack that I really need to make it fit on my road bike.
Would any of you suggest doing this? I'm talking just cutting off a tiny bit to make the quick release fit. I've check it out when trying to fit the skewer on my junker commuter it just needs to be shortened a tiny but and could probably still be used on a mountain bike.
