As a bicycle racer Tulio Campagnolo had a terrible experience fighting with his wheel wing nuts in freezing temperatures. By 1930, he had perfected his patented quick release skewer system - which has remained essentially unchanged ever since. One would think everyone would want to adopt that newest technology. So, why did we still see wing nuts on even top level racing bikes for many more years?
