Once upon a time, it seemed that there was a nearly universal preference among most cyclists to position their wheel quick release skewer levers on the left side of the bike, with the front crossing the fork and the rear crossing the chainstay. Of course these were the old school levers that were offset from the wheel hub. Now I know that there is no "wrong way" to position your skewer levers, and that a lot of skewer levers are no longer offset making the old position impossible. After checking in a few recent issues of cycling magazines, it appears that there is no nearly universal preference of skewer positioning any longer. How do you position your skewer levers?
