Proper quick release usage?
About 3 weeks ago I bought myself a 2007 Kona Dew Deluxe. I've ridden bikes alot before, but this was my first foray into disc brakes. They are Hayes mechanical MX4.
Everything went well until I took off the wheel to transport it. Then after I put it back on the brake rubs. I took it to the shop, they adjusted it and it worked fine, until I took the wheel off.
I went to the Hayes website and got the instructions for adjusting it, that way I wouldn't have to ride down to the store everytime I took the wheel off.
I can adjust it and everything works fine, until I take the wheel off.
I think it has alot to do with the quick release. I'm not sure how to guarantee that I am unwinding each side exactly the same to ensure I don't have to spend a few minutes adjusting the brake.
