Need help!! taking off back wheel.....what tool do I use?
So I'm trying to change the back wheel inner tube on my bike but as you know the wheel must come off first but I'm having a problem because I have no idea what tool to use. On the left side of the back wheel there is a standard 8mm allen key insert (no problem) but on the right side there is a bolt I've never seen before I've posted a link with a drawling I did of the strange bolt. If anyone could help me to identify this strange bolt and what tool I should use it would be much appreciated.Bike wheel bolt .jpg
Just hold it with your fingers when you turn the other side. Or are you trolling? If you have never done this before, you might consider having a bike shop do this one, and watch what they do. Or have a friend over who knows more about bikes to help do the first one.

You may have a locking quick release but hopefully not. While you're turning the allen bolt, hold the other side with your fingers and see if it comes apart. If it doesn't, you may need to take it to a bike shop and have them remove it. You'll probably end up buying a new quick release if that happens.
