Ok I know this is a big idiot question, but today I got my first MTB bike and the LBS had to take off the front wheel so I could get it in my car.
Now I was reading the manual about putting the wheel back on. I have the Quick Release lever on the left side (correct side). Now I have it hanging down with the "Open" side facing out and I tighten the other side by hand until it won't tighten anymore. Now when I try and flip the lever to the "closed" side, I can barely get it to the halfway point, because the resistance is too great. I'm pretty strong (me and my friend lifted up a heavy dune buggy the other day so the tire could get changed), but I can't get this bad boy to move very much.
Thank you in advance for any advice.
