      Comments about Nashbar Bolt-On Skewers:

      I bought this skewer set to replace the quick release set on my daily commuter for added security. Unfortunately, they didn't last a day - the front skewer threading stripped when hand tightening them for the first time. The rear skewer stripped later that day when re-tightening. Do not buy this skewer set - they are very poor quality. When the first skewer failed I figured it was user error. When the second failed, my opinion changed.

          Comments about Nashbar Bolt-On Skewers:

          I bought these for my daughter to use at college. She wanted to save time while locking up going to & from class. Clearly, it's not fool-proof security, but we're hoping it will be enough to deter the casual thieves on campus.

          Thanks to previous reviews, I was careful not to over-tighten and break the plastic washer. So far, so good, but I wish the washer was aluminum.

          I ordered 3 sets for my bikes. One of them snapped while first tightening. Might have been a different batch... The other 2 are working so far. I ordered 2 BBB sets to compare quality.

          Comments about Nashbar Bolt-On Skewers:

          Good price, however, the threads snapped on me after 2.5 years of use. I may have over torqued them, but this is the first time that I've had skewers brake on me. `I do ride almost every day and put a lot of wear and tear on my bicycle. I feel they should've lasted a bit longer.

          Comments about Nashbar Bolt-On Skewers:

          Hand tightened at first and estimated the torque by hand, worked well that way. I then used my Spin Dr Torque wrench set at 9 nm and when I tightened the rear wheel it snapped the shaft. Hope I can return it without cost to me, if I can't then I'm out $$.

              I bought these skewers on sale to increase the chances that I would still have my wheels at the end of each day. The skewers are just as described. They fit my road bike and are lighter than the quick release skewers they replaced.

              Best Uses

              • To prevent wheel theft

              Comments about Nashbar Bolt-On Skewers:

              These are nice products in every respect unless you want to use them on a bike with wide-spaced rear dropouts. Those on my touring bike measure 136 mm. For me, the rear skewer would need to be 1 - 1.2 cm longer for the threads on the skewer to completly go through the securing nut. It's a shame Nashbar won't make this change given other reviews mentioning this problem. For lack of a centimeter, they're forcing customers to turn elsewhere for bolt-through skewers.

                  Nicely made product that is not too expensive and it works. Especially, because of the use of hex key, you don't worry about loosing a special key to remove these. I got the chrome color and they turn out very nice.
