I have a Civia Bryant which I ride around the city and to work everyday. Yesterday, while walking the bike into my apartment building, I noticed that there were noises coming from the front wheel. Later, when I was able to take a closer look, I noticed that the disc brake rotor was making contact with the brakes and that the tire was touching the fender too. I removed the wheel and tried to put it back while making sure it was aligned properly, but as soon as I tighten the skewer, it becomes misaligned again.
I haven't taken any spills nor has the bike gone through something that could explain this. I do ride in NYC streets everyday and when in traffic cannot avoid all potholes, but that's it.
Does anyone have any idea about what the cause of this could be and how to go about fixing it?
Thanks in Advance.
Edit: I should point out that I changed the quick-release skewer that came with the bike for a locking skewer. It is when tightening the hex nut for this skewer that the wheel becomes misaligned.
