I've read that one nice attribute about Shimano C35s is that the wheel is designed such that the skewer clamp force is directly on the axle which takes it off the bearings.

In my mind, this sounds great, but I'm no expert on wheels. If this is a great design, I'd be surprised if other manufacturers aren't doing the same thing.

Thanks for your input.

Campagnolo has been doing it that way since 1999 (for Record and Chorus; you had to wait until 2000 when Athena was replaced by Daytona for the technology to move down-market).
