Sometimes when working on a project you have to give up on an idea with which you fell in love. Partly as a jab, and partly because it was perfect, I pitched the idea to Justin Spinelli, of Luxe Wheelworks, for a design that incorporated the setting of a Swarovski crystal into the skewer lever for his custom built wheels. How Luxe would that have been?
Anyway, after a few changes we came up with the current version, which just came back from the shop. This lever is swiss milled out of 6061 aluminum, then anodized black, and then laser etched with the Luxe logo on both sides.
The lever replaces the stock plastic lever on the Joy Tech skewer system. Rims for your rims. Available on Luxe Wheelworks stock in-house builds soon.
