    Just wondering if there are 12mm versions of QR or skewers out there. I know DT Swiss RWS is 10mm for the rear. There are QR for the 20mm front wheel. If I want to use 12mm for the rear, I am stuck with axles that I need tools for. Has anyone found a solution?

    Thanks in advance.

    Like Matt said, DT and RS both make one, I think they also have one that is a solid QR axle as well, I know I will be using that style for myself on my next wheel set.
