    Text of bill.
    It only applies to wheels with a diameter of 20 inches or less.
    It excludes wheels with a secondary retention device,
    wheels that "require a significant level of dexterity to remove",
    and "specialty adult bicycles".

    I'm not saying I agree with it even with the exclusions, but there is some misinformation going around.

    From what I read over there it seemed to include every bike known to man sold in NJ.

    The retailer article said it was recently ammended to include 20 in or larger wheeled bikes too! We need a recent copy of the bill. This copy is dated Oct 2006.

    Remember, New Jersey is one of two US States that don't allow
    self-serve gasoline service ...

    NJ also tops the list of superfund states so you can see the toxic thought here. I knew moving out of that $hithole state was the best thing I ever did.

    Exactly. People in New Jersey are inherently stupid. I think it's due to all of the toxic waste in their drinking water. They can't fill their own gas tank, hell, they probably can't wipe their own arses. It is not a surprise that they aren't be allowed to use qrs. Really, they shouldn't be allowed to ride bicycles, unless they've got training wheels.

    I have been looking but have been unable to find a recently dated official version of the bill.
    In This version dated October 2006 it would be illegal to sell any bicycle with wheels 20 in or less with a QR, Excluding specialty adult bicycles.
    All other bikes with a QR would require a secondary retention device to prevent separation of the wheel from the bike.

    The problem with the secondary retention device is that such a device currently does not exist and it would be difficult to design one that would meet the requirements and be compatible with all forks.
    If this law goes into effect bolt on skewers would have to become the norm in NJ.

    When quick releases are outlawed, only outlaws will have quick releases!

    Aren't the "Lawyer Lips" on forks a secondary retention device? You know the little raised area around the skewer bolt on both sides. You have to really unscrew the skewer a ways to get the thing loose enough to pass over them. I think nearly every QR fork has those.
