My QRs are in a box somewhere. I don't have the finger strength to open them without some sort of prying tool. Since I need to use a tool to operate QRs, I might as well use skewers designed for tools, so I replaced them with bolt-ons. The commuting bikes use security bolt-ons (Pitlocks). Side benefit is that I've never had a bolt-on skewer come loose.

As for bikes, all of mine are trustworthy and supportive. All it takes is a little TLC. Each fills a different role, so as long as I use a bike appropriate to the task, all is well.
