    Sure they are not the packing protection that has not been pulled of at the point of sale as it should have been.

    Looking at photo's on scotts webby, they look like bolt through skewers (sensible on a Hybrid used for commuting), one end will have an allen key slot (usually non drive side), either 5mm or 6mm, undo it until loose and the wheel will drop out like it was a QR.

    Currently riding a Whyte T130C, X0 drivetrain, Magura Trail brakes converted to mixed wheel size (homebuilt wheels) with 140mm Fox 34 Rhythm and RP23 suspension. 12.2Kg.
