A Bit Short
August 8, 2011
The rear skewer was a bit too short for my current set-up...the chrome looked cool but performance was needed more over style...bit the bullet and paid more for the Salsas.
When I put the quickies on it wont stay...secure. Am I missing
When I put the quickies on it wont stay...secure. Am I missing something? If I put it too tight, then it wont go. Bleh. Noob cyclist =\

you should be able to crank them down pretty good and you bike should still roll. You might want to check a couple things out though, Make sure that you finger tight the "nut" part of the release, and then fold up the arm to make it tight... it should take a good amount of force, dont be crazy, but you do not want you wheel to come off after a bump or something. If you hub/spacer/wheel is flexing under the lateral compression, you should probably get it checked out at a local bike shop.
Once its on correctly, check your brake calipers, is one of the brake pads resting on the rim? that will make it not roll so well. You can adjust the skewer by rotating the "armed" part of the skewer in or out to adjust a little bit, or you can adjust the brake caliper. I would suggest make sure the wheel is in the middle first though, you want them to roll straight. If none of that works, it sounds like they dont fit your bike.

Doesn't fit wheel very well
April 9, 2011
These are a bit tight, at least up front. I gave the end cap a few turns and it's hard to fit the wheel into the fork's dropouts with the skewer on (yes, the end springs were pointy end facing in). Took them off, put the wheel in, then popped the skewer on and it clamped down after just barely tightening the end cap. I tried to take it off and the drop out tabs kept me from being able to take the wheel out. I spin the end cap loose until it falls off and pop it on with half a turn and the wheel manages to come out with a bit of coercion. Definitely a bit tight.
I basically wanted something, anything, a bit easier than my current Shimano XT skewer, since that requires like 20 half-turns to tighten/loosen to remove the front wheel. It was becoming to be a major annoyance, considering that I have to remove my front wheel to transport my bikes.

These are the same as those listed on Hucknroll. Isn't there
These are the same as those listed on Hucknroll. Isn't there a size difference between road and mtb skewers? Are these sized for road bikes, like the FSA K-Forces that you offer? Thanks!

Generic skewer sets can be considered interchangeable between mountain and road setups. While most MTB rear hubs are 135mm and Road hubs are 130mm, there is enough extra thread length in the skewer for the 5mm difference.

so what do these fit?
April 26, 2010
the seat post skewer seems ok. the other 2 different sizes in this kit do not fit my 700c wheelset.
haven't tried them on the 26" mtb wheels yet.
they are a nice color, I'll give them 1 star for that.
Is the "graphite" finish close to that of Campy's
Is the "graphite" finish close to that of Campy's "century grey"?

Will do. Re-building a cross bike with a mix of Shimano (9 speed Ultegra cranks/hubs and m960 XTR grey rear derailleur) and Campy Century Grey Centaur (front derailleur and shifters). All the Century Grey stuff I've found so far has been overseas.

the graphite finish is close to Campy's century grey. post some pics of your build! century can be hard come by...
