Hi there. Hope y’all are doing well. We just got our co op kids bike yesterday. It’s the Co-op Cycles REV 20 Speed Plus Kids' Bike  

When we tried to assemble it, the front wheel couldn’t go smoothly when inserted into the break. It felt the caliber is always scratching the break slot for some reason. I wish I could upload a video to show but I couldn’t. We tried to loose the silver bolt of the break it was no help. We tried to tighten the wheel bolt still can’t turn it as smoothly as the back wheel. The back wheel feels fine.   Any suggestions or ideas what might went wrong? We were really looking forward to this bike, but now we just can’t use it. 😞
