    Longer Skewer needed - Added Carbon Fork

    So i added a carbon fork to Boris frame. front axle is 135mm spacing. The dropouts on the carbon fork are much thicker than the OEM steel fork.

    Anyone have a recommended QR or bolt-on front skewer for this situation?

    Thanks

    Hope or Salsa both make 135 Fat specific skewers.

    If that does not work you may try Halo XL skewers. Don't think Salsa or Hope skewers are any longer than the expected OEM. I have Hope skewers.

    I have piles of 135 and 150 Salsa skewers just taking up space. I'll send you one of each for the price of shipping.
