    They would be of help when you get to the cleaning end up the ride -- getting dirt out of the skeletons is a pain. I have to dig out the q-tips to get into the cutout portion of the caliper.

    These were delivered over the past couple days and I got the package today as I was gone on a trip. They match the rest of the 9000 groupset on this bike, but not the hub. Additionally, the rear one must be placed slightly imperfectly in order to not contact the frame. Oh dear!

    I wanted to love the DT-Swiss skewers that came with the wheels. They are great. But they rattle. These won't rattle.

    Excited to try them out. I'm sure they'll be laterally stiffer, more compliant vertically, handle as if on rails, be doped to the gills, save .047 seconds over a 40 km (25 mile) time trial because they were ported and polished by hand, won't pinch flat because they're on tubular wheels, allow me to ride one cog higher than usual, etc. Or at least I hope they hold the wheels in place.

    Me too, but what can you too. It is worse with hooded dropouts. Doesn't work for all skewers (such as these) but I really like this feature of the Gaulzetti dropouts for this very reason:

    That's what I thought. "He stole Darren's bike!"

    I hate the shape of the lever on those 9000 skewers, but they're so good otherwise. I have two sets and just had to get used to them pointing in weird directions to clear the dropouts. It was either that or fear having my wheels jump off the bike.

    The DT-Swiss ones are great actually and I may try to figure out a way to exorcise the rattle because I actually to like them. And they sit at proper angles. Yeah, these are a bit odd looking. Maybe I shoulda gotten Ultegra. At least they work perfectly.

    Still wish I hadn't sold my 585 Ultra. That's an awesome frame!

    I hope it came with a rear derailleur hanger.

    Devlin it was. Chooey is a bad man. He seemingly has a service course under his bed and our size is pretty close.

    Are the hangers known to be problematic? I've just tried fitting an older campy veloce and it's not going in. Looks like it's stripping the thread.

    Not in my experience. I had to replace mine after a tip over. I use campy and the threading for the rear mech was not an issue.

    Sweet. Likely me be hamfisted. Managed to get it in there, I must have fouled the thread initially. Thanks for the tip.

    Put a drop of oil on the threads and you'll be good. If you want more drop there are lower headset caps available, but they're tricky to source. That one's 15mm and there are 8mm FSA ones out there.
