      I am new to mountain biking.. bran new trek 3700, I used the front tire quick release to take off my front tire before I put it in the truck, when I put it back on, the tire rubs the brake like crazy, what did I do wrong ?

      I check right before I took it off, and the tire spun perfect..

      My guess is that you have rim brakes.

      Sounds to me like you didn’t seat the axle back into the front fork properly when you reinstalled the wheel. One side may not be completely seated and it will cause your wheel to spin at an angle and contact one brake pad. Check that first and get back to us.

      thanks, problem solved… I have rim brakes, and just slightly re-adjusted them
