Front Quick Release

Postby WayneG on Sat 1/Mar/14 4:01pm

Ok I have just built up a Chris Kings front wheel and now need a quick release to go with it. What is a good brand to get or what ones should I stay away from?

IMHO Shimano QR skewer's own everything else. I've had Hope one's they're OK, I'd use one, but would far rather a Shimano one

I hate to admit it but Shimano make the best by far. Hope QRs on the other hand are a piece of junk (nice hubs tho)

Closed cam skewers cost more, weigh more, look old fashioned, and work really well even after years of use and abuse.

If open cam skewers were good then there would be no reason for anyone to keep making closed cam skewers.

XT or XTR as above.

Don't bother with Titanium skewers to save a few grams. They are stretchy beasties that only belong on weight-weenie Road Bikes.
