The New Jersey state legislature passed a bill that will ban the sale of many bicycles equipped with quick-release skewers. The ban, introduced by Gloucester Assemblyman Paul Moriarty, passed the state Assembly 77-3.
The bill prohibits the sale of QR equipped bicycles with a wheel diameter of 20 inches or less. While intended to for children's bicycles, the law as written also affects many adults bicycles such as folding bicycles and recumbents.
The legislation has not received consideration from the state Senate yet so this is not state law. If you're in New Jersey, though, you want to keep on eye on what kind of legislation is proposed for your Senate.
