    1) Yes. I am using a rear Shimano XT skewer on my road bike.
    2) Some brands are better than others - or to be more accurate, some more tricky to set up than others. And that's just dumb.

    If the skewer is longer than it needs to be cut the extra off. The thickness of the bike's dropouts will have as much effect as the hub spacing.

    Yes. The exception are the newer Thru-axles used on many newer MTB's. But yes, MTB QR hubs are 135mm rear (100mm front)

    titanium for a 200 lber... may be too heavy for it (eating into the designed safety margin)
    2010 Specialized Secteur Elite with the RBR not-approved Mavic Ksyrium Elite wheelset
    2009 Specialized Rockhopper Comp 29er upgraded to SRAM X9 with 1x10 and Stan's Arch EX rims and tubeless.
    2013 Cannondale CAADX-6 Tiagra with 9-speed SLX RD to run 11-32T cassette and Stan's Alpha 400 rims and tubeless
    and
    Some Burton snowboard setups, one with stiff ol' Camber and one with Rocker-Camber-Rocker
