I was wrenching a bit on my 2005 Felt F65 bike last night, mainly cleaning the drivetrain. Took off the chain, has one of those snap-on, snap-off chains on it. Dropped it in some Orange degreaser. Took off rear wheel, commenced to scrubbing the cassette.

Put the wheel back on, and it wouldn't sit in the dropouts correctly. The skewer doesn't appear to be bent. Frame has a carbon seatstay setup. Frame and bike have not been crashed, dropped, hit, anything. I just bought it in November, and have about 2500 km on it since then. Half of that in the trainer. Why would the wheel not sit back in the dropouts correctly?

I'll post a pic later on of the issue.

By "correctly", I meant that when the wheel is seated into the drop-outs, the wheel is not equi-distant from each seat stay. It leans to the right, looking at the bike of the bike.

I actually have this crappy old trainer from Supergo, cause I'm a cheap-a$$, and it has been the source of my discontent since I received it as a gift back in 2003. It's time to be retired. It's screwed up my last piece of equipment.

I feel that the wheel axle may be what's out of whack. Since we're not talking about the skewer here, this will involve a trip to the shop, cause I'm no wheel builder. Could this be an excuse to upgrade my wheelset???? :D (currently running stock Alex 220 A Class wheels, fine for what I need them for)
