The Hadley only needs one 6mm Allen

The Hadley 9mm bolt only needs one 6mm Allen (hex key wrench) to install and remove, the nut on one side has a tab that fits in the fork dropout to keep it from spinning.

Awesome! I just picked up the skewer, but I'll pick up a Balle Racing soon to compare the two. Thanks for the links and the info.
