plastic washer cracked quickly
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
The plastic washer on the front skewer cracked within a couple months of daily use on my road bike. This doesn't speak well to their overall durability, so I stopped using them.
They weighed in at 103g total on my digital scale.

These are ok for the price, the problem I ran into is they did not fit my current fork and the threads are super soft making it really easy to strip them out. The back and the seat qr were fine, the front is where I found the problems.
i like mine
I don't know what these other reviewer are doing wrong, but I've used mine on two bikes - MTB (same fork as other reviewer) and CX and they worked perfectly on both. I would recommend.
A Bit Short
The rear skewer was a bit too short for my current set-up...the chrome looked cool but performance was needed more over style...bit the bullet and paid more for the Salsas.
Doesn't fit wheel very well
These are a bit tight, at least up front. I gave the end cap a few turns and it's hard to fit the wheel into the fork's dropouts with the skewer on (yes, the end springs were pointy end facing in). Took them off, put the wheel in, then popped the skewer on and it clamped down after just barely tightening the end cap. I tried to take it off and the drop out tabs kept me from being able to take the wheel out. I spin the end cap loose until it falls off and pop it on with half a turn and the wheel manages to come out with a bit of coercion. Definitely a bit tight.
I basically wanted something, anything, a bit easier than my current Shimano XT skewer, since that requires like 20 half-turns to tighten/loosen to remove the front wheel. It was becoming to be a major annoyance, considering that I have to remove my front wheel to transport my bikes.

Like the guy above asked, what size wheel DO these fit if not a 700 wheel?
so what do these fit?
the seat post skewer seems ok. the other 2 different sizes in this kit do not fit my 700c wheelset.
haven't tried them on the 26" mtb wheels yet.
they are a nice color, I'll give them 1 star for that.

When I put the quickies on it wont stay...secure. Am I missing something? If I put it too tight, then it wont go. Bleh. Noob cyclist =\
These are the same as those listed on...
These are the same as those listed on Hucknroll. Isn't there a size difference between road and mtb skewers? Are these sized for road bikes, like the FSA K-Forces that you offer? Thanks!
Generic skewer sets can be considered interchangeable between mountain and road setups. While most MTB rear hubs are 135mm and Road hubs are 130mm, there is enough extra thread length in the skewer for the 5mm difference.

Is the "graphite" finish close to that of Campy's "century grey"?
the graphite finish is close to Campy's century grey. post some pics of your build! century can be hard come by...
Will do. Re-building a cross bike with a mix of Shimano (9 speed Ultegra cranks/hubs and m960 XTR grey rear derailleur) and Campy Century Grey Centaur (front derailleur and shifters). All the Century Grey stuff I've found so far has been overseas.
