I have to deduct one star for the skewer and quick release. The hub itself is well made, light and rolls well. The skewer seems well made and is metal, maybe steel, but for the life of me no matter how hard I press down on the quick release it will not hold the wheel in the rear dropouts. The nuts are knurled, but there just isn't enough material to make it hold the wheel. It continues to pull out if I pedal hard and the wheel rubs against the left chainstay. I'm going to try to switch it out for an old steel Shimano or Campy, or possibly get rid of the QR altogether and go with a bolt on version. Any advice here would be appreciated.
The Grand Cru hub has a beautiful finish, is smooth rolling, has nice freehub body/engagement, and most importantly is silver and looks great. A black version would be appreciated though!
