Shimano center pull quick release
What is the trick with getting center pull (shimano) front brakes off and on quickly?
Optional long story below...
I don't know why I am this inept but I had to remove the front wheel from an older Cannondale H300 to transport it for someone and it had a center pull Shimano brake that I just couldn't figure out how to release. It had these black "pins" on each side that looked like they flipped around and out to release but flipping them around and out didn't seem to help much and it was a pain to do.
Eventually I got the wheel off, transported the bike and when I tried to put the wheel back on it was a pain to get the brake back on and it touches on one side. I'm no mechanic and I am used to side pull quick release that are really easy to work.
Any advice would be appreciated. Or a how-to video would be great too ;-)
I want to fix the brake now too.
BTW, I search the thread for "release center pull" and a lot came back that seemed to have nothing to do with what I was looking for so sorry if this is a frequently asked question.
