Strength:

Price chromed skewer shaft - no rust lever is smooth once broken in

Weakness:

small cam means it''''s not that quick up front. lever is kind of bulky when closed. Ok for the mountain bike, a little much on the road. Lever end doesn''''t fit my trainer - no big deal.

Well, these are QR''''s, and really, what''''s to be expected? They hold the wheels in place, don''''t require too much fiddling to get the tension right, and the price is right. I would like to see a more exaggerated cam, though. It''''s either futz with the front every time, or file off the lawyer tabs. I''''m going to try some of the new American Classic skewers, which have a huge cam, and see if it helps. In a straight comparison, the Salsa or Shimano skewers are better, but not that much better, so I''''ve got 4 sets of Formula''''s floating around on various wheelsets.

Similar Products Used:

Salsa - very nice action, but $$ Shimano - smooth, not chromed, and expensive separately.
