    Welded titanium skewer. Anybody seen one like this?

    Ive never seen such a skewer and would like to maybe use it on a vintage build but Im a little scared. I dont know if I could trust it.... Anybody know anything about these?

    Could be a Nuke Proof skewer. I had a set awhile ago and the lever was welded like that.

    Poor photo attached but you get the idea.

    Curious!

    Just to reassure myself...http://www.gearhead.com/gh/products....id=1867&view=2

    I'm guessing two styles were produced then?

    Yep, thats it. Thanks. I was worried it might be someones homemade creation. It looks like I need the aluminum spacer on the lever side.
