    Loosening Riot Pinchbolt

    Hi all,

    Could anyone confirm which direction the Riot's rear axle pinchbolt should be loosened? I need to get my rear wheel off for a cassette swap - this is the first time I've needed to pull the wheel in a while, and the pinchbolt is quite stiff.

    If I remember correctly, the pinchbolt unthreaded clockwise when facing the non-drive side, but I just wanted to be sure before using more force.

    Thanks.

    Both the pinchbolt and axle are threaded normally. When you are facing the head of the bolt, clockwise to tighten and counter-clockwise to loosen.

    If you're looking at the bolt (bike upside down)its counter clockwise. Same if behind the bike, unscrew to the left.

    Thanks for the info - I just vaguely remember the bolt being reverse-threaded and wanted to be completely sure before starting to really wrench on it.
