The rear skewer was another victim of the Big crash of 2011. Time to look for an upgrade. I found this light pair on eBay for a very moderate amount of money. Titanium shaft, aluminium alloy levers. 45 grams per set. I weighed my old front skewer and alone it was at least 115 grams. Now if I can finally get that wheelset put together! They’re not the best-looking skewers and the colour doesn’t quite match, but weight-savings like that make it worthwhile!
