    Basic rear wheel installation

    I just want to make sure this is right. It's a super simple question.

    I took off my rear wheel to check something on the cassette closer, and upon reinstallation I forgot how I took it apart.

    So basically on one side, there is a 6mm allen which is the gold colored axle. Then on the other side is a 5mm allen that screws into the axle, and has a purple colored piece of metal flange type thing.

    So I should unscrew the flanged piece enough to slide the axle onto the frame slots, and then the only the gold axle sits on the frame, but it doesnt line up. So I have to tighten the bolt until the frame bends a tiny bit and the axle sits flush?

    And then how tight should it be?

    Ha, just want to make sure. thanks
