I'm after a quick release skewer which you can totally break down. I need to be able to remove the rod part - so i can put in an extra long one.

I've bought a couple of skewers but these ones have the rod part pressed/clamped tight into the qr part. so after one which you can unscrew the rod section relatively easily.

cheers.

cheers for the replies. so they do exist. out of the ones i have and the cheap ones i bought online none of them could be undone. i did drill out one and tried putting in a grub screw to hold the new rod but thought it abit unsafe.

thanks again.
