I was contemplating this the other day--is it safe to run ti skewers on a full suspension mtb? It seems that some of the frame designs place a lot of stress at the rear QR axle, such as the Giant NRS with a pivot point directly above the rear axle. Is Ti stong enough and resiliant enough to ride on bike like this?
I have a Specialized Epic, and although there is a pivot point right near the rear axle, I don't think that it relies on the rear axle stregnth much. It all has to do with tension and compression--but I am not familiar enough with these topics to make a safe assumption.
Any ideas? Have you used Ti skewers on a FS bike? Which one?
