... first off I am not a weight weenie.

There said it :P

However after looking for some red anodized skewers for a build :oops: I came across these:

http://superstar.tibolts.co.uk/product_info.php?cPath=32&products_id=422

Image

Not retro but retro in spirit being anodized :?

Anyway ordered a set at the £15 posted price.

Came today with some free haribo.

The Haribo almost weighed as much as the skewers :shock:

I guess only time will tell with longevity but they do come with a two year warranty.

Just though I would post up in case anyone is interested :D

BTW I am in no way affiliated with the above site.

They look like the skewers a few folks are badging up, for much more ££ IIRC. The Ti thing I believe is that titanium by its nature is not good working as a fastner, too elastic!
