I'm replacing the quick release skewers on my bike with allen key skewers for a little security.
Clearly the old skewers were well greased and it sounds pretty standard to grease them. There are plenty of forum posts at a google search but I thought it would be useful to ask here.
Is there any chance I shouldn't lubricate the skewers? There is no indication on the package that this is necessary.
What lubricant should I use?
What exctly is the lubricatant for? All of the rotation should be handled by the hub, there shouldn't be any rotating friction on the skewers themselves right?
