My new Kona is my first bike with disc brakes. Does the front QR skewer really need to be soooo bloody tight to avoid the wheel side-movement after few heavy brakings?
When I fit the wheel in a way I used to do on my old bike (with rim brakes) the front wheel changes its position after a ride - it can be clearly seen comparing the left/right distances between the top of the tyre and fork's legs. Also the brake squeals like a pig, even when the braking is very gentle. I'm not even mentioning the brake rub, as it's obvious
To avoid that I have to turn the QR nut a bit more, so to close the skewer I have to use a lot of body weight through my hand (and it's very painful procedure, also a struggle to take the wheel off).
Are there any stronger/better QR's?
The fork is the Rock Shox Recon Silver.
