    Cannot remove back tire after opening brake release lever?

    I followed the instructions here to remove the back tire: https://www.chainwheeldrive.com/arti...asy-pg1442.htm

    The problem is that even with the brake release open, there isnt enough space between the pads to pull the tire.

    Somebody told me that after opening the brake release, to unscrew the barrel adjuster to increase space between the two pads. My concern is that once I reinstall the tire, Iíll have to mess around with the barrel adjuster so that the brakes work.

    The other alternative is to let some air out of the tire and then refill when i put the tire back.

    Any help is appreciated.

    Yup. Really not that complicated. If you unscrew it 4 turns, you just screw it back in.... 4 turns.

    Yup.

    The other alternative is narrower tires. Or wider rims.

    What size tire are you using?

    Buying parts to hang on your bike is always easier than getting fit.

    I see cantilever brakes in your future.

    ... or just don't air your tires up until they are on.

    ... you seem to have a lot of problems, maybe you need a car.

    If you spray your WD40 on the sides of the tires, it might allow the wheel to slip out easier.

    This is not as fun as ASFOS.

    If you rode a fixie with no brakes you wouldn't have these problems.

    It's 11sp trolling under his latest troll persona. I mean, is ANYBODY so dumb as to not know how to deflate their tire?

    don't think it's 11sp...the writing style is not sufficiently pedantic or condescending.

    You know, I almost wish the trolling threads, instead of getting locked and deleted when they get really crazy... were moved into a sub-forum so we could go back to them for laughs. The sub-forum name would HAVE to be ASFOS.

    If I ride 15 mph for 60 minutes, now far have I gone? That wasn't even the best one.

    If you need to remove your rear wheel, just deflate the tire.

    you are putting your Jack in the wrong place, put it under the bottom bracket and the tire will come out easily.
