Removed front wheel to transport bike from 4 week stay at bike shop for tune up. At home, I cannot insert noodle to reattach bike. It's like cable is too tight. Contacted repair guy, who said I could use a hex wrench to release cable a bit. It's on so blasted tight, I cannot budge it. (Senior lady here!) Does anyone have any suggestion on how to make this work? I do not have anyone nearby to help. I do not want to return bike for another lengthy stay at shop.
The adjuster does not give me enough cable to pull the noodle enough to seat it. When the repair guy removed the wheel at the shop, he certainly didn't use force. Someone suggested letting air from tire, removing it, inserting noodle and then pumping tire back up. Perhaps I that is worth a try????
