    avid shorty 4's

    I have these on my Jamis Nova along with shimano 105 brake levers and just realized I don't know how to release them to get the wheel off if I get a flat!! It's probably a stupid question but I have campy centaur on my other bike and it has a button on the lever to release.

    HELP!

    Release the brake cable from the top of the right hand brake arm.

    Pull the brake levers together at the top with one hand, this relieves the tension of the brake cable. With the other hand pull the lug on the very end of the right hand straddle wire out and up.

    It can be a bit fiddly, especially with small hands.

    I woke up today and gave it a second look and it was pretty obvious. Boy do I feel dumb!! The room was dark and it wasn't as easy to see last night.
