Some companies just call them bolt on/anti-theft skewers. Zipp sells a front only and calls it a track skewer. More secure than a quick release I suppose? Definitely wouldn't trust one on the rear though hah

you and me both! and thank you! the downtube decals are generally used on Yamaguchi's tandem builds (with larger tubes) but I was able to score some thankfully. I think they look a lot nicer than the smaller ones
