    Quick release assistance needed for Trek 7100

    I've just bought it, so you know I have to ride ASAP. Trouble is, the owner's manual is on CD - cracked - and I can't remember how to reconnect the front brake. Google hasn't helped.

    I will get a new CD later, but what about tonight and tomorrow morning? Gonna die if I can't ride it.

    Seriously, any help is welcomed.

    This is as far as I could get looking through Trek's website. Shows brake adjustment, supposedly, but the images aren't coming up for me.

    Maybe you'll have better luck.

    Thanks, DScott. I got the manual in PDF format. Unfortunately, the manual doesn't clearly illustrate the quick-release process.

    I've used quick release of the front wheel before on another bike; unfortunately this seems harder than it needs to be.

    Thank you, Raiyn. Exactly what I need, just as I was uploading a picture!

    The problem is if the noodle is inserted into the arm link, the brake will be permanently engaged. If I engage the brake first, there's no way the noodle is going into the arm link. There isn't nearly enough length, and it doesn't stretch.

    In fact, it's extremely difficult to do that with two hands, let alone one. Even if I did, the brake would be engaged.

    But I know the bike isn't broken; I am. I just don't know where.

    Solved. It's all in the fingers.
