Long time since I've been on here-
Recently had a bad rear flat on my trek 7.3fx, over glass. Both the tire and tube were gone. I found the stock bontrager tire that came with the bike and put it on the wheel with a new tube easily.
Now, I can't for the life of me get the wheel back into the dropouts. Its about 1cm away from the perfect fit, but just won't go the extra last bit.
fyi I removed the wheel in the wrong gear, and corrected this only afterwards. Brakes are open. I'm not sure what to do next.
So two questions:
1. How do you get the rear wheel to fit snug in the dropouts?
2. Is it alright to use two different tires, both are 700x32.
