hi! someone just gave me a bike. her mom gave her the bike and she never wanted it so, needless to say, she couldn't really tell me anything about it. on the side of the bike it says "specialized cross roads cruz" so i guess that's the kind of bike it is. i'm trying to find a way to keep it in my studio apt and i want to take the front wheel off with the quick release so i can lock it to the back tire with a u-lock. the problem is, from what i can tell, there is no brake release. does this mean i just have to force the tire into and out of the front brakes? the brakes say "shimano 200cx", by the way. if you've got a second and an answer to this question, i'd really appreciate your input. thanks!!
