Thanks for sharing BeatLA.
It seems that everyone who has McGards has nothing but good experiences to report. A lot more people seem to seem to use them too, maybe because of the price.
I searched other forums for opinions on Kics and everyone who has ever had Kics just says "GET THEM" or "kics ftw". Something basically unsubstantiated and more or less useless.
I wanted to clear one thing up, do the McGards really have thread all the way to the taper like this diagram suggests:
I'm having trouble imagining the rotating taper and the threads working together.... Is the actual thread housing recessed from the taper so as to not scratch up the wheel?
