Not to mention the fact it looks like there are no tyres on those rims, unless its just picture angle?

Maybe they did get it right, look at any Maxle and quite alot of Maxle rear ends and the QR lever is on the drive/RH side. The reason is to keep hands away from the rotor, which potentially is hot. Now I'm not saying this is what Halfords have done but there you go.

I didnt realise QR's had a side,far as i can see they exert the same pressure each side :?
The way yours are set is the way mine are now on all my bikes.Always been so.
Although i must point out that the skewers must be pointing skywards

Have said it before, they should be on the left side and pointing directly backwards.
Just wondering if i missed anything.
The fact my maxle one is on the wrong side really peeves me.
