what the hell apart-2Mick

The shaft(rod of the skew, quick release pipe) was bent the lbs replaced it. What could it have caused the rod to get bent? Do I need to check the dropout on the frame and the opening in the hub that the rod goes through to check everything is straight. What the hell, I only had the bike for 3 weeks and got only two chances to ride it.

Thanks for your help again

The problem is you probably didn't close it correctly- learn how and you avoid this problem in the future.

I had the same problem on a bike I use to have. It turned out that the rear triangle was out of alinement. Could get the LBS to verify this.
