But I am pretty sure X-lite wouldn't be :lol: :lol:

Saw a pair of poorly looking X-lite skewer parts in the for sale the other day and started to think Hmmm :wink: So £5 later they arrive on my doorstep :D

So about my work I set had some ends nuts and some springs off of a now defunct set of skewers no problem :D

Being the Magpie I am I keep shiny bits and had a couple of small lengths of alloy tube that came on a seatpost I bought holding the clamp in place slight modification on one end with a round file happy days :D :D

On to the bay of evil to order some stainless M4 bolts to fit 8) :D

Now my headache the seats for the rotating barrels thought about nicking some off of another pair of skewers too easy :facepalm: :lol: Rummage rummage through my spares boxes oh hey what's that there a spacer off of a rear roadie brake :idea: :idea: Perfect fit slight file off the top to accommodate the slightly too long bolts and voila :D :D
