Install Quick Release Front Wheel

Front Wheel - Bolt on Installation

  • Loosen the brakes to allow the wheel to pass through the brake pads.
  • Insert the wheel into the fork dropouts.
  • Install retaining washers with the raised lip facing the fork, or use step retaining washers if applicable.
  • Tighten the axle nut to center the wheel between the fork blades.
  • Spin the wheel to ensure it is centered and clears the brake pads. Adjust the brakes if needed.

Remember to check the front wheel connection carefully to prevent dislodging.

  1. Remove the tension adjusting nut and spring from the skewer, then slide the skewer through the hub. For bikes with disc brakes, start from the side with the brake rotor. Replace the spring and nut.
  2. Disengage rim brakes for tire clearance.
  3. Insert the wheel into the dropouts, ensuring the lever is on the left side.
  4. Hold the lever open while tightening the nut until it is finger-tight against the fork dropout.
  5. Push the wheel firmly into the top of the slots, centering the rim. Close the lever parallel to the fork blade. Adjust the nut and try again if the lever doesn’t close properly.
  6. Re-engage the brake, spin the wheel to check alignment, and squeeze the lever to ensure proper operation.

  2. Place the chain on the smallest sprocket and adjust the High limit screw to align the guide pulley with the sprocket.
  3. Re-tighten the cable, remove any slack, and secure the anchor bolt.
  4. Test shifting through all gears to ensure smooth and quiet operation.
  5. Use the barrel adjuster to fine-tune cable tension: turn it clockwise to move the chain away from the wheel and counterclockwise to move it towards the wheel.
