    Rear axle issues on Ripley (v1)

    Hi,

    I bought a Ripley pretty much as soon as the range was launched.

    Turned out the large was too big for me, so it has done less than 50 km.
    Due to this, I am wanting to sell, but I found an oddity when combing through it.

    I can screw in the rear axle easily from the outside, but doing it through the wheel, it is really difficult, almost like the thread is slightly skew inside the frame.

    I've not picked it up before, as I've only had to put the rear wheel back once! I cannot take it back to where I purchased it, as we immigrated shortly after buying the bike, so that is a long commute!

    Have anyone else had this or similar issue?

    Mine does that sometimes. It seems the derailleur hanger can move a little when the axle is out causing it to be difficult to thread the rear axle back in. Try moving the hanger a bit and it should line up and thread in fine again. That has been my experience at least.

    Yup - I think that did it!
    Pulled the whole derailleur off, was still a little stiff, but it went in on first try.

    Thanks tlechnow
