How do I install the Kinetic Skewer on my bicycle?


If you're having difficultly installing the supplied skewer:

The skewer should work with most bikes, the problem is most likely that it is not tightened all the way. The plastic insert in the nut acts like a lock nut. The first time you thread it on it feels like you are running out of threads when you get to that lock nut, as you are essentially cutting threads in it. The best way to do it is to install the skewer is to first remove the skewer from the bike and thread the nut all the way on a few times to break it in. You will then be able to thread the nut on far enough for the quick release to engage properly.
