    "Quick" release

    I have 700x32 tires and V brakes, my front wheel is anything but "quick" release. Any pointers to releasing without doing something about the front brakes?

    Do the brakes have a quick release so they open wide enough for the wheel to get out ?

    The brake noodle can be released from the "noodle holder" as shown in Homebrew01's pic. This allows the brake arms to open up and make room for the tires to clear the brake pads.

    Okay squezing the arms and pulling the noodle out works fine, thanks. My friend has a dyna hub will the power cord be attached to the hub in some way?

    I have a Shimano and a Schmidt dynamo hub in my fleet. Both have quick-connects at the hub. Of the two, I think the Schmidt is more obvious, but the Shimano is a slicker part.
