    Tallboy rear skewer problems...???

    I have been having some issues with my tallboy rear skewer. Unless it is really really tight...like to where I can hardly close it...my wheel will be too loose and have play in it. It has to be so tight that I need a tool to pry it open.

    Any ideas...???

    I'm going to guess loose hub that needs to be tightened.

    What kind of hub do you have? I have had this happen on Shimano xt hubs. The cone and cup bearings were loose.
