Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

SuperSix Front Wheel Won't Go On

Hi,

Putting together a new 2020 Cannondale SuperSix EVO Carbon Ultegra.

The caliper is open but when the brake rotor is aligned with and slightly in the open caliper the hub axle head hits the fork dropouts so it doesn’t go in. The spokes are also against the brake.

I would have to bend the fork or the bend the brake rotor to force the wheel in. That’s the problem. The wheels on my other two bikes disc brake drop right in. This one hits the fork dropouts when the brake rotor is slightly in.

Anyone else had this problem and figured it out?

New to site, so couldn't post pix.

Thanks,

John

Maybe the caliper never got aligned properly? Loosen the two bolts that hold it, get the wheel in, hold the brake lever to align the caliper and then retighten.

Putting the bike together? Has the bike not been fully assembled before?

For pics, just write the URL of them in the plain text of your message. Remove the https:// . If the spam filter still balks, then change the "." to " dot ". Maybe some other things to obfuscate it.
