Hiya!

My lock nut on my clix quick release has fallen off, I just wondered where I could get a new one from. Also, is it still safe to ride the bike without one?

Thanks

    ANy QR nut will fit, but really... do your self a favour: throw your QR in the fireplace next time you light it and get a set of Shimano quick release... any Shimano branded ones...

    Pretty much the totality of those external cam skewers are not up to the job... a QR has an important job to do, so saving the gram is not a good idea.
    Shimano internal cam ones are the best money can buy
