    ASR5C: Damn that rear wheel is hard to remove/replace

    Is it just me or is it just plain DIFFICULT to get the rear wheel off and back on - I am not a noob at this, I have had mt bikes all my life, although this is my first 2x10 . . .

    I have tried starting with chain on smallest cog, and couple cogs up from smallest, I also just switched to 12x142 which is slightly easier because the axle doesn't go in until the hub is up past the derailleur.

    But, I have to force the cassette up around the derailleur and I feel I am putting a lot of lateral pressure on the derailleur to get it to move all the way up to the right position, with the disc rotor bumping on the frame on the left side the entire time.

    Anyways, if it matters: DT swiss tricon 12x142 w/SRAM 2x10, Specialized Captain 2.2 tire

    Is your chain too short?
