Nah mate, Hope are the better QR's, Spin stix are for garage queen only. Sometimes form must give way to function! :wink:

Hope.

Not sure when they started doing them though.

But they'll work!

My Hope's have never gave me any issues for 10 years and the cam action actually works as a QR. Spin Sticks always remind me of posh wing nuts.

Is it a choice of Hope or USE only? Any others you fancy?

Like Gus I prefer the curvy look of the Salsa. Mmmm

I've used Hopes before and never really got on with the way they closed, never felt quite right (to me at any rate). I know that a lot of people use them without any problems though. The Salsas look good and operate well.

Cheers
Steve

Thanks chose Hope QR in blue. These are going on the Black Trimble. As it has a bit of blue in the name plus red & yellow. I have a red stem and a yellow water bottle. :D
