After possilby the nicest weekend this year thus far, and having to spend it all with a bloody cold and not on a bike, I broke a Ringle Twister last night, about half way through it's 3/4 turn do up cycle.
Just a warning then about these skewers to those that didn't already not trust such components...
Snapped clean off at the top of the thread that locks the spindle into the twister (cam type thing) lever bit.
Luckily it happened in the garden not down a hill somewhere. Was showing no signs of wear and was regularly cleaned, ti prep'd.
Reckon it's XTR then for me from now on. Not Pimpy but strong and safe etc.
It's just hard as traditionally one of THE areas of pimpness was always the skewers.
Maybe Salsa's but they're not that pimpy are they.
