Well...

I would have preferred Pithy, but I understand... and so do you. ;)

I've always been a bit uneasy about those spindly skewers, and surprised at how much abuse they can take. I pretty much stay on the ground, but with 240lbs hammering them by default, they obviously are far stronger for the application than they look. Of course, it is the tiny shoulder of the axle itself that sees the load in purely vertical/linear situations, but the twist the skewer sees has to be somewhat substantial.

Maybe that new extended commute will have a positive effect on your power-to-weight ratio?
