Strengths:    None

Weaknesses:    None

Bottom Line:   
These skewers work fine. I have these on every set of road wheels I own except one. All are good except one, on my training wheels. That one is very chewed up on the outside, and the one side also doesn't turn anymore. I'd suggest that if you have the money, shell out the bucks for the Dura-ace skewers. They're probably sturdier, and more reliable.

Strengths:    •Low price (like most Shimano gear).

Weaknesses:    •Like so many other skewers - the levers are too short.
•Not the best looking there is, but hey - it's Shimano!


Bottom Line:   
Not bad, but the best thing is you can look around and get them discounted like everything Shimano makes. They work, but don't get them thinking they'll dress up the looks of your bike too much!

Strengths:    works very well. it's very smooth and hasn't shown any signs of starting to be not-so-smooth.


Weaknesses:    not as cool looking as it could be

Bottom Line:   
shimano QR's work well for a long time. don't buy those dumb aftermarket ones that JUST look cool.

Switching from triple to double with Ultegra 6700

My triple crank is about toast and I would like to switch to a compact double. I believe that I will also need to change out the front derailleur & front chain ring shifter (not sure if that's worded correctly). I will be installing a new chain & casette as well. I plan on staying with the 6700 ... Read More »

Removing Ultegra pedals for SPD?? Is this total sacrilege or just nuts??

Hi folks I have a conundrum. I figure you guys would be the best folks to ask. Background: In the last month I've decided I wanted to get back into recreational riding. I was pretty avid in the 1990s in my teens but have been out since 2000. In the last month I've bought (all off Kijiji) a dec ... Read More »

Ultegra 6510 Shifter Nameplates

My 2003 Ultegra 6510 Shifter Nameplates are badly cracked. (They are the plastic caps with the "Ultegra"on them. they are located on top of the shifters and are attached by a small screw). Does anyone have any around or old 6510 shifters they can take them off of? I can pay for them.Read More »
