Home » Quick Release Front Wheel Installation

When your bike first arrives you’ll find there is a large bolt on the fork to help protect the fork during shipping. Remove that piece using an adjustable wrench and set this part to the side or discard. With the spacer bolt removed you are ready to install the quick-release skewer. If you look at your skewer, you will see a nut, two springs, and a lever. Remove the nut and one spring and slide the skewer through the hub re-attaching the spring and nut. Lift the bike inserting the disc rotor between the gap in the brake pads and making sure the axle sits in the forks. Finally you are going to tighten the nut until the lever becomes firm to close
