Gear Talk / Re: Wheel Skewer verses Bolt
« on: March 17, 2012, 10:59:35 pm »
I have a mountain bike with QR rather than bolt-on axles, instead of skewers.  From a touring point of view, you won't be able to use a trailers like a BOB, which uses a replacement skewer to attach the trailer to the bike if youe go with the axles.  But that may not be an issue from you if you use panniers.  There are a couple of seatpost mounted trailers which avoid that issue, but they are not nearly as common.  I think using a QR skewer would also be alot easier if you get a flat.   

BOBGesr sells replacement nuts for threaded axles to accommodate the Yak and Ibex trailers.  Look for Bob Nutz
