Quick Release Skewer 145mm and 160mm

Hi All,

Does anyone have a good source for quick release skewers for tandem wheels aside from the usual tandem stores?


Thanks,

Chris

Paul Components, at least for the 145mm: https://paulcomp.com/shop/components...lease-skewers/. We used these on our tandem.

A few options for 145mm spaced tandems (note that these are all about the same length, in spite of their "measurements":
Sunlite 200mm quick release skewer ~$10
DT Swiss RWS Tandem 145mm ~$30
EVO Quincy Roger 177mm ~$10

Those are all available on Amazon and eBay. For specific stores, www.niagaracycle.com has all 3 options.


For 160mm spaced tandems, your best bet is Santana directly.

B.O.B. skewers designed for use with their trailers are very robust with a secure grip.
We use one on the rear of our tandem. (No trailer)

Tandem Quick Release - 145mm

I found out Velocity also sells quick release skewers and ordered a nice set from them.
