    Has anyone actually broken a QR skewer?

    I set up my p1 with a set of Roval Traverse wheels of my enduro and im running double shimano QR skewers. I broke my original p1 front wheel and just swapped them out.

    Besides the obvious disadvantages of stiffness and stuff has anyone actually broke one?

    About 5 years ago I was stuck with a QR rear wheel for a few weeks. I snapped 4 QR skewers and the actual axle the skewer goes through twice. I'm under 145lbs.
