They do define the 'golden' era for most of us though don't they - probably better than any other component. Such choice and variety and colours and and and...

It's a shame nowadays that more care isn't given to trick little bits in good colours and with lovely designs/ logos/ names.

I know, I know, we can go out and buy X-lite or hope ones in colours, but there was something about the mid nineties skewer options available that i miss.

I was thinking this morning as i flicked through an old mag - if I ever got my hands on a Delorian that could actually travel through time, bugger going back and sorting out your relatives - I'd go back and stockpile what was listed in the Stif advert from 1993. "all colours" seemed to be the resounding comment.

Nice stuff tune, if a little pricey , but they still have that little bit of a retro look about the skewers and the bigfoot cranks.

Those ebay skewers aren't quite Tune...look like copies. Thought 45E was a bargain!!
