Bicycle Quick Release Maintenance

Bicycle Quick Release Maintenance:

About once a month, lube your quick-release levers because dry levers won’t work well and can feel tight when they’re not.

Aluminum quick-release levers usually press against bushings as you close the lever. Lightly lube where the lever contacts the bushing (photo), to keep the quick release operating properly.

 Steel levers usually pivot inside the cap. Apply lube to trickle inside the lever’s pivot point.

 If there’s a nut or screw holding the lever (look beneath the cap), snug it with a wrench or screwdriver to make sure it’s tight.
