Any recommendations for reasonably priced light skewers? Cheap source? Must be available in silver.

I like the house brand Performance skewers (Q-Stix). They seem to have nice action, and are reasonably priced. If you watch for the sales, you can pick up a set of Ti jobbers (79g) for about 20-25 bucks. The chromo versions are cheaper yet and not too much heavier (96g).

Anyone want to debate the use of a Ti skewer on the front wheel of a road bike? I don't notice any difference on mine, however I DO notice the differnce between Ti and steel on my mountain bike.
