    Question about QR front skewer

    Do you still need to unbolt a brake to remove the wheel?

    You typically will still have to release the brakes so the brake pads clear the tire. You should be able to unhook the cable from one of the arms. You don't have to "unbolt" anything.

    Thanks for reply. I suppose I should have been more specific. I'm wondering if I will have to remove the disc brake caliper on a lefty fork in order to use the quick release designed for a lefty.
