    front XTR hub pulling loose?..............

    a few months ago i replaced my front wheel. the hub is an XTR 960. today i confirmed that the front wheel pulls loose slightly...when i release the skewer the forks drop in slightly.

    i've never noticed this with any other hub....is the solution as simple as tightening the skewer a bit more?

    thanx.

    The solution is to always do up the QR with the front wheel on the ground and the weight of the bike over it.
