Due to a friend having his Cannondale Tandem stolen last week we now have to use both of my Tandems for our Atlantic to Med tour in August. Both bikes were going to tow Adventure C1 Trailers but the standard 'long' quick release is not long enough for the Thorn 160mm OLN.
Does anyone know if this item could be stripped down to provide a donor Skewer to fit the Adventure 'Cam End'?

How is everyone finding the little springy screws that lock the trailer to the skewer ?
My trailer has never fallen off but they don't feel great.

Can't believe my ukfixing 5M bar arrived this morning. Ordered late yesterday, £1.80 no charge for p&p and it arrived about a hour ago, overnight delivery and was packaged brilliantly.
Waiting for my skewer now but did order the one from Germany so might take a bit longer.

Good value for money but they discontinued them a couple of years ago. The two shown in the links to Ebay look very similar with the exception of the addition of the red suspension units(?) near the rear wheel. The £250 one is expensive but £901 for the other is really taking the mickey!
