I would like the added security a locking pair of wheel skewer locks, and a seatpost lock would give me. I already have a Kryptonite U-lock for the frame.

My question is, would these types of skewer locks be safe for mountain bikes? I ride mostly flatland trail rides (Florida), and easy to medium trails at mountain bike parks (n0oby). I don't do hard drops or long downhill riding since that isn't really found in South Florida. I also weigh 230 if that helps.

I think I'll be ok with those skewers holding up on my bike, but I guess I'd like to hear someone else with more experience tell me it's ok.
