Rear Skewer

My rear skewer keeps loosening up during rides, and I think th nylon washer on the quick release side is the culprit. Any recommendations on a set of replacement skewers? XT, Hope, Mavic?

thanks, scott. besides not wanting to drop close to $80 on skewers, the product descriptions also mentioned they shouldn't be used with front/full suspension.

My original rear skewer used to loosen up spontaneously all of time as well. Those DT skewers are lousy. Switched to Shimano LX versions about 4 rides ago and so far they've been nice and tight without having to really crank them down the way I did with the DTs.

pretty wild, clutch. i guess replacing the rear der hanger didn't help?

The hanger was just so thin I didn't even bother, I figured if it did hold it wouldn't hold for long.

I ended up finding a deal on some xt hubs laced to some rhyno lites. I then bought the solid axle from airbomb and swapped it out myself. The funny thing is I didn't realize how squirly the rear end of the bike had become until I fixed it.
