Paul Component: Quick Release Skewers in Stock May 16, 2014


I am so, so, so stoked on the newest product from Chico, California component company, PAUL!

“Our first product in 1989 was a seat post quick release. Then came wheel q-r’s. They had the same internal cam design as Tulio’s. Yes, Paul is a huge fan of the man. Now, for our 25th anniversary we’ve updated the design and brought them back.

The stainless steel shafts screw into orange 7075 aluminum heads, which are oval putting the material where it’s needed and not where it isn’t. The handles are a stainless steel/aluminum affair for a good balance of ergonomics and weight savings. The nuts have a nice matching o-ring and a thread friction element to keep them in place after the wheels are removed. Sizes from 100 to 170mm. With a 190mm coming soon.”

    i am the biggest paul freak there is, but i do wonder about the durability of that exposed o-ring in, say, cleveland winters…

    $50 for each skewer?

    • They’re really really nice man. And they’re made in the USA.

        Not complaining. Just curious.


    what sucks with 7075 small parts is that they oxidize rather quickly… especially thread-wise…

    • I was thinking the same.. especially when used with stainless steel! The anodised parts will be ok, but the threads won’t
