if it's a bolt up skewer designed to retro-fit a qr hub (as opposed a proper bolt up hub conversion such as you can do on Hope ProIIs), you'll probably find the bolt up skewer generates less clamping force (or at least no more) than a standard skewere - the narrow size of skewer spindle is the limiting factor, not the force you can generate on the ends.

will make it more of a pain to change a flat though
