Use a Quick Release Bike Wheel
Thor, Crystal, Eng, Inukshuk
Hello and welcome to VisiHow. Today I'm going to show you how to take off a quick release wheel from a mountain bike or touring bike.
First thing we need to do is to make sure the chain is on the smallest chain ring. This will make it easier to take the wheel off and put it back on.
Now we need to make sure the tire is slightly deflated to make it easier to pull the tire and wheel off. Take off the nozzle, open up the valve and allow some air to escape.
Open and unattach the brakes to create more space to take out the wheel. Push the brakes together, pull the brake cable and unattach the brakes.
The next stage is to pull the quick release lever, unscrew and pull it out.
Here is the component. Make sure you don't lose the spring, you can put it back on and re-screw it for now.
Now, to take out the tire, we're going to lift up the derailleur and pull the tire out.
That is how to take off a quick release wheel from a touring bike or a mountain bike. If you have any comments or suggestions, you can leave them in the comment box below. You have been watching VisiHow.

Method 2: Installation
This is how to reattach a quick release wheel to a mountain bike or touring bike.
The first thing we need to do is place the wheel here making sure the cassette is on the same side as the chain.
Lifting up the derailleur, we can make space for the wheel. Try to place the chain on the smallest chain ring so it's in the same gear as when it was taken off.
Next, slide the wheel back into position.
Take the quick release device and unscrew the spring.
Place the quick release lever in, replace the spring and then tighten both sides. When you feel it is tight enough, push the lever back down. If it's difficult to do that means it's tight.
Reattach the brake by pushing the brake together, pull the brake cable out and slide the brake cable into the housing.
This is how to reattach a quick release wheel to a mountain bike or touring bike. If you have any questions, suggestions or words of wisdom and you want to share them, please do in the comment section below.
