    skewer size

    how do i know what size rear skewer i need? i'm looking at xt skewers and see135mm, 173mm, etc. i have a salsa el mariachi with stan's arch with formula hubs. i don't have my bike here to measure it but even if i did, i wouldn't know where to measure it from.

    thanks.

    edit: i'm thinking it's 135mm, right?

    Any 8, 9, or 10 speed on the cassette mtb has a 135 rear and 100mm front.

    Hi
    Does the skewer diameter matter or are they all standard?

    5mm is generally standard for quick release. you'll see some 9mm and then thru-axles at 15mm and 20mm.
