"Like any component or tool, the assumption is that users have a working knowledge of proper application and use. There's nothing inherently wrong with QR skewers when properly installed. The problem isn't with QR skewers, but with user…"

"Thru axles are still easily removable, but you have to un-thread and pull the entire pin out before the wheel comes off. It takes 30 seconds rather than 5 with a QR skewer. Many new MTB's come with Thru-Axles because they work better with disc…"

"True a welded on wheel would make it near impossible for a consumer to change a tire.  That is why I termed it a single use trailer.  That lame brain thinking of making the product unserviceable by the consumer is thankfully unheard of in…"

"I have a double and a single BOB, both pre 2015.  I have never had an issue, but I have seen them loose, probably after we packed them without the front wheel then when I or the wife put it back on.  As a cyclist I know it would be my…"

"Politics aside, I wonder why Britax doesn't just switch to thru-axles? Seems like this would largely solve the problem. "

"I enjoy that this is all based on NEARLY 100 injuries over 6 years... That's 16 per year; almost only one a month.  If that depending on how far under 100 it is.*hard eyeroll*"
