    Can anyone tell me if pitlock locking skewers would fit a trek fx 7.3?

    I'm guessing yes because it's a pretty standard bike, but I'd like to make sure before I order them.

    I know the pitlock rear skewer fits dropouts up to 151mm and the front skewer fits dropouts up to 115mm.

    But what I can't seem to figure out is the exact hub size of the trek fx 7.3.

    They look like the right size but still... I worry.

    Can anyone maybe shed some light on this?

    I hope?

    Cheers,

    Snaithbert

    Hi Snaithbert.

    95% of bikes will be able to use the standard Pitlock skewers. Most of the time you'll have some extra threaded portion left-over that you can trim. If it turns out that the Trek fx 7.3 has freakishly wide dropouts, I also stock non-standard (longer) replacement Pitlock skewers as well as Pitlock's Joker skewer which is a full 210mm of threaded skewer. The Joker is usually used in cases where the bike has paniers, child-trailers etc.

    Great, thanks for the info. I just placed an order and I'm looking forward to getting those suckers on my bike. And if they don't fit then I guess I'll order a joker, though how I would trim it- I have no idea. I'll cross that bridge when (and if) I come to it I suppose.

    Many thanks!
