    I use the Cannondale 12mm Thru that came on my bike and am thinking about getting the DT swiss rws for my other bike to replace the QR

    I use a 10x135mm DT RWS on my SX-Trail

    It'd be pretty rad if DT made a 12x150mm RWS skewer

    10mm bolt on at the moment, next bike will probably have a 12 by 150 rear end.

    Turner 12mm TA.

    I also like the saint derailer that mounts to it, good idea and very strong (even if it didn't catch on big-time).
