    Sram clickbox won't come off

    I'm doing a century in a few hours. I wanted to take the fat tires off my Xootr Swift and put the skinny ones on.

    The clickbox button won't depress, and the clickbox won't come off the axle.

    Any suggestions would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    Well, unless they have made a design change that I missed, there will be a knurled headed screw in back of the click box that you need to unscrew to get it off. I have not seen one with a push to release button.

    Yeah, it's a button now. See page 10.

    I'm taking my road bike on the century instead, but I'm going to need to deal with this when I get back.

    Oh, Dual Drive. That is a different click box from an S7. I should have picked up on that, because I have a couple of dual drives in my rental fleet. Guess I was being a bit thick there. Sorry about that.

    Oops! And if I'd had more brainpower at that hour, I'd have used the entire name of the part.
