Posted By Evan Solida on 06/01/2014 12:46 PM Success!! The tick is gone. The solution was replacing the Mavic skewers with some American Classic ones. Think they just bite into the dropouts a little better. What part of the skewers should be greased on occassion? The axle, lever arm pivot? Little confused. For now, the Blue is safe and will not be thrown in a dumpster. Thanks again for all the help!
