    Differences between Mavic Road and mountain skewers?

    I'm looking for some Mavic QR skewers for my Crossrides. Saw some on fleabay and asked the seller if they were road or mtn and he said road.

    What are the differences between the Mavic SLR Road and SLR Mountain skewers, anyone, please? I looked on the Mavic website and they are small physical differences in the piece the skewer lever pivots. I know they both have composite levers but anyone use the road ones on a mountain bike or not a good idea?

    Rear skewer lenght varies between road and mountain set because of difference on rear hub o.l.d. (130 mm vs. 135 mm). I'd never tried put a road skewer on a mountain bike but I think it isn't long enough.
