    I'm front parallel with fork, rear parallel with seat stay (ie. up and slightly forward).

    Some French guy told me that when I was a youngster, and have stuck with it.

    Just makes sense to have the levers in line with the frame, however you like it - no right way or wrong way (just so long as they are tight !)

    In terms of a clock face, I have the front one at one o'clock or 3 o' clock and the rear at 10 or 11 o'clock as you look at them. I've seen skewers get hooked by other riders when riding in a road race, but this is not applicable to most people.
