    Help with Speed 7 rear wheel

    OK, so I'm not mechanically inclined, but I have no problems removing and replacing the rear wheels on any of my full-size bikes. Triples, they have long-cage rear derailleurs, so there's lots of play.
    The rear wheel on my new Dahon Speed 7, with a tiny little compact derailleur, is giving me fits. I got it off OK, but is there some trick to getting it back on? I can't seem to get the dropouts anywhere near the axle. Any advice appreciated. Soon I'm going to reach for the hammer...

    One of the models with the Neos? The trick is to take the chain off the chainring, manoeuvre it so that you have extra chain at the cassette to work with, install the wheel, and then put the chain back on the chainring afterwards. I have personally found this method much easier.
