A smart vorbii would only post pedaless pics on here, keeps the thread from crashing and burning at worst or at best a 3 page sidetrack....

my rationale for left is that I'm right handed, and like to tighten the QR nut with that hand, leaning over the front of the bike.

surely it depends on how you look at it... and any way why does a bike balance does any one know?

Is a bike actually balancing while it is moving?

Horizontal QR lever is so TT.

Also, if the rear one is tipped a bit further toward horizontal it can be used to hook a bungy cord.

Hmm, can't find any references in Velominati to bungee cords, so I'm struggling to comment on that one :p
But based on rule 29 I would say 'Velominati says no' :D

Velominati are road weenies so their wisdom is questionable to begin with.

On my disc brake mtb, on the right to stay away from the toasty warm disc, on the rare occasion I actually ride fast enough for it to get warm.

On my non-disc mtb and roadies, on the left in the prescribed fashion, safely tucked away behind the fork.
