Can you use any quick release with Campy wheels or do they have to be campy branded skewers?

Absolutely sacriligeous! Isn't there some way of making this board a little more selective? Now I'm going to have to call the priest to come and exocise my computer again.
any other kind EXCEPT Shimano. (nm)terry b

Thanks guys. But as for the shimano bit I will never purchase another shimano pruduct again after a flap I had with there customer service dept. a couple of weeks ago.
What I want to know is, I would like to get a set of black skewers to go with the the Campy wheels I just got, and wanted to know the best to get?

Pick up a pair of American Classic Ti Skewers. They will cost you the same, be lighter, they are black, and they have a very long throw cam design. Mine have such a long throw that I don't have to readjust them for the safety tabs on my fork, just open and remove. I have a pair of skewers that came with my Cane Creek wheels that look to be the same thing, so you could get those too.
