Title (EN) APPARATUS AND METHOD FOR ATTACHING A BICYCLE WHEEL TO A BICYCLE
(FR) APPAREIL ET PROCEDE POUR FIXER UNE ROUE DE BICYCLETTE A UNE BICYCLETTE
Abstract:
(EN) A bicycle fork (12) has a dropout (20, 22) with a dropout alignment device (56) for aligning a wheel hub (24) with an aperture (34) in the dropout, so that a wheel axle (26) may be inserted for connecting the wheel hub (24) to the fork (12). The dropout alignment device (56) may include an aperture alignment surface (58) or a dropout guide surface (60), or both. The wheel hub (24) preferably includes a hub alignment device (50) configured to operably engage with the dropout alignment device (56).
(FR) Une fourche (12) de bicyclette comprend une patte (20, 22) à dispositif (56) d'alignement de patte pour aligner un moyeu (24) de roue avec une ouverture (34) ménagée dans la patte, de sorte qu'un axe (26) de roue peut y être introduit pour relier le moyeu (24) de roue à la fourche (12). Le dispositif d'alignement (56) de patte peut comprendre une surface d'alignement (58) d'ouverture ou une surface de guidage (60) de patte ou les deux. Le moyeu (24) de roue comprend, de préférence, un dispositif d'alignement (50) de moyeu configuré pour s'accoupler, de manière fonctionnelle, avec le dispositif d'alignement de patte.
