Thanks

According to the print in the arms they should be on this side,..
which makes sense if you look at the Crank Arm and all 3 skewers

Wow, very nice rider it has bacome!!!

I was thinking that the skewers where practicly on the right, when you drive disk brakes they are also on the right. Gera technically spoken the skewers are more practically on the left side, estethicly spoken the right side icw the Cook cranks look much better. But why do I have my skewers of the bikes on the left. Have some hours to think of that before going home....
