Trek 4300 – March 2011 Upgrades

Saturday February 26, 2011

Upgrades or downgrades?  I’m planning on changing the quick-release skewers on my Trek 43oo to standard non-QR skewers.  This should make securing the bike much easier when out and about.  Now I realise that a determined thief could still nab the wheels but I don’t plan on leaving the bike for long periods anyway.  Even if I do, I can still loop the lock chain through the wheels.  Changing to non-QR skewers would make short term locking much easier (for example: nipping into the shop for five minutes).

I’m also looking to replace the quick-release seat post collar with a non-QR variety so I don’t have to lock that each time too.

I’m thinking of ordering the parts this weekend and then giving the bikes their spring service during the next couple of weeks (time permitting).
