    I was switching out skewers on my 2012 Trek 1.2 so that I could put it on an indoor trainer and I kind of messed up. The chain is somehow behind the frame and I have no idea what to do. Any suggestions?[​IMG]

    Don't panic, all is good.

    With your right thumb, push the arm of your rear derailleur down. Then with your left hand, hold and slot the rear wheel in. The cassette will go in the organized gap you have formed.

    You probably don't know what gear you were in, so lightly nip the wheel and gently turn the crank. Once in correct gear, loosen your skewer, apply your back brake and tighten the skewer. Cam your rear brake back in and your good to go.

    Now ride hard.

    Correct, but when you set your cam set it so it just starts getting some tension in it at a 90 degree angle from the stay, then clamp the cam.
