I like the look of these kingsberry skewers, simple and seem to work well with the internal cam action

And what they'll be going on once I build some new wheels up, 1992 (I think) slingshot ongoing project.

Nice seatpost :wink:
Did you know that before you bought it, it was in my Slingshot :lol:
Good to know that it has found a good and familiar place to stay.

Hi Kees, wow yes that is a big coincidence :D I am not sure how the slingshot rides with a Ti post though, did you find it too flexy? In any case I will try it once its finished and see.

you betcha, I searched pretty hard for them and they look great with the new decals from Gil.
Cooks cranks are fitted now, just trying to decide on the wheels - what it really needs is a pair of black Bulleyes :wink:
