putting wheels back into dropouts.. how perfect?
hi, another newbie q:
when placing wheels back on the bike, how would a bit of crookedness affect ride, safety issues, etc?
especially noticable with rear wheel w/ derailleur tension.. i believe i have the hubs placed as far inside the dropouts as possible. but since i'm using my knees to pull the wheel in the slots while tightening, i never know if i lose the slightest mm or so... what kind of factor does a slightly crooked wheel make in the ride?
