You may recognize the name. I have posted a couple of questions and have received invaluable assistance. Perhaps one day I can be a “helper”. In my last post I mentioned that I was picking up my new bike today (Saturday) and I have done that. The salesman was very helpful, giving me a full walkthrough. During the ride (bike in car) home, I began to wonder if I truly understand the removal and replacement of the quick release wheels.
For what it’s worth, the bike is a Trek 1000.
Please check me out. Following is the way I understand it.
Front wheel: Release brake. Loosen the quick release adjustment nut. Release the quick release lever. Remove wheel. Replacement: Drop wheel securely into slot. Tighten nut - or secure it might be more correct. Close lever. (Some resistance should be felt). Reengage brake release.
Rear wheel. Same, but make sure to place chain on smallest sprocket. My terminology is still suspect.
Sound OK? Anything else I should know or look out for? The real wheel particularly concerns me.
Thanks again. I’m getting there.
