    Looking for QR skewers 135/170 shipped to Canada

    I know this is a very long shot - if this is too spammy or frowned upon for anyone just pm me and I'll delete the post.

    Looking to replace my rusted skewers on my fat bike, and since I believe these sizes aren't common anymore I'm wondering if anyone has a pair in their old parts boxes they'd want to sell and ship.

    I'm seeing nice shiny stuff available online, but since this is just a cosmetic upgrade I'm not looking to spend ~100 CAD for these things.

    I'm going to risk the obvious and ask if you tired to source locally ?

    The 135 should be easy to find - that's the old standard rear QR for mountain bikes.

    Or if you happen to want a 29er wheelset that fits a fat bike for cheap, with skewers -

    Yep. Local shop closed last year. Kind of liked the next closest place for a bit but their non-communication and false promises made me stop going there. Next place that I just discovered last week has great service but is stupid expensive.

    re 135 - Yeah my silly nave ass dreamed of a blingy patching pair, but I've gotten too cheap with this type of stuff. Re bikeisland - some irony here, this is for a Motobecane bike from bikesdirect (same company).

    EDIT and I fully expect to be banned for admitting that.

    AliExpress, if you can wait a month or so for shipping:

    Use my spammy new user referral link to get some coupons (not sure if they apply to the skewers or not):

    I've some, maybe. Will take a look in the morning and let you know. If they work, yours for shipping. Might even be something with some faded anno bling.

    Edit _ nevahmind. not sure where they went, but all gone

    I might have a 135 in a junk box, not likely to have a 170 though. Where are you at? Are there any bike recyclers nearby? There is one in Kelowna and one in Vernon I know of.
