- Rear Wheel Pulling Out Of The Drop Outs
JRA’ing and the rear wheel starts rubbing on the inside of the left chainstay or even comes out completely.Posted 5 years ago
The qr, although old is still done up bastid tight. Still does it though.
Frame knackered? QR need replacing? Something else?
Any helpful suggestions apreciated.
“Put wheel in frame with QR removed and make sure axle is resting in dropouts correctly etc. then fit QR and tighten.”
First thing I tried but thanks anyway.
Hardtail. It has done it in various combinations. The rear mech (Sram X9) is sticking when it is put on the biggest cog but a quick tap with my toe releases that. It’s rarely in the biggest rear cog anyway.
Otherwise, no other issues.Posted 5 years agoPeterPoddyMember
Daft question, but is the QR bent or seized inside the axle? I had this once and I literally had to hammer the qr out a bit, add grease, hammer back in and repeat until I could get it out. Not my bike though……Posted 5 years ago
But if this happens your qr is only tightening on one side, see? 🙂MrPottatoHeadMember
Also used to get this on an old Specialized. Never managed to fix it having tried various hub/qr combo’s. In the end i fasioned a hook out of some steel plate that wrapped round the back of the drop out. Not prety but rode it like that successfully for about 10 years. I’d heard some replaceable dropouts were made of a material too hard for the hub to grip effectively-not sure if that was just someone talking shite though.Posted 5 years ago
