    Have i done this right?

    Just picked up my new Rockhopper and i had to take both wheels off to get it into my car to take home. The guy in the shop showed me how to but the wheels and everything back on but im not sure ive done it correctly. Could someone have a look at these pics and let me know what they think.

    Do this and this look correct?

    Is my rear
    wheel in correctly or should be be nearer to where ive marked?

    And finally i wasnt sure which way the front wheel is supposed to go. Does this sticker point in the direction of rotation? If it is then then the front and rear quick release levers are on the same side.

    It all seems to be ok but im new to this and would just like to be sure.
    Sorry some of the picks are a bit crapy.

    Cant wait for it to stop raining so i can take it for a ride.
    thanks

    Everything looks good.

    However I do not understand your rear wheel question for the 3rd pic.

    I agree with KevinG, it looks sound. Just remember to connect the braking before riding. Have fun, Portent.

    Yeah, on the Roll-X tires that marking shows the way the tire is supposed to roll

    Grats on the new bike!
