Bottom Line:   

When I built up some new wheels with a Chris King hubset I bought, I used this quick releases. Compared to my old Shimano XT skewers, they are much, much better. I'm using the Logic Cro Moly ones but they look the same - I just want something real stiff holding my wheels on. Anyway, when you tighten these babies, they just feel super secure. And the levers look cool too, nice machining work. I like them at least as much as my road bike's Campagnolo Nuovo Record skewers.

Bottom Line:   

The Ritchey Logic WCS Ti Skewer set is great. The long levers and smooth
butter-like quick release action make your hands say thank you. At only
78 grams per pair these are a treat. The machining gets five stars alone.

lightweight ti skewers that you trust?

I understand some significant weight can be saved on lightweight ti skewers over standard xt skewers, and the cost is pretty low. Front skewer is unsprung weight too (on a hardtail) What do you run and trust?, there's no shortage of ti skewers on ebay.Read More »

Need Advice for XL TI Bolt-On Skewers

My rear dropouts are 1cm thick on each side, so I need a rear skewer that can fit around a 155mm total dimension (std length fits the front just fine).
