American Classic Skewers


Recommended Posts

I friend of mine has AC wheels on her MTB, but really battles with the skewers.

She is a pretty accomplished rider and not a technophobe, but the skewers come loose often. If you hand tighten the small nut, its too tight to close and if its a bit loose, they open while riding. She/we find it difficult to find the right spot so they stay closed.


Does anyone else have this problem?

Don't like them either. You must make sure the little cam under the lever is orientated correctly as this can turn independently to the lever. Some wet lube from time to time also helps.

I have the AM 350 MTB wheels with AM skewers.

I have no problems with mine after doing close to 1000kms.
