Dirt Bag Tip

On the Mistress' front fork is a QR20 hub system. It's one with a redundant QR system. Redundant, well of course since long ago they added the anti lawsuit devices. So how to solve the proble.

Well after digging through a parts bin found me one of those replacement skewers people use to prevent wheel theft. It has a 5mm allen head instead of a QR. After a quick check of all the important details. Gave it a try and it works. No money spent and a quick and easy solution to a problem.

And one bonus is a saved an ounce, as if it matters on a beast bike.
