Stolen Wheel

Postby 1Rowdy1 » Wed Jun 21, 2017 4:06 pm

Not sure if this is ok to post here.

Some person (I use the turn loosely) decided that they wanted my front wheel from my hybird while I was in the supermarket, bike was locked but the front wheel was not, so I guess I asked for it, they just undone the QR, wheel is just a cheapie and the tyre was well warn, but still really annoying, today I really miss the "nut and bolt" type of axel from my youth.

You can replace the QR skewer with a 5mm hex key skewer, crc has them as do ebay. A touch more theft resistant. And they are lighter too.
