Hey what's up everyone, I just got into the quality bike "scene" and stopped buying those bulky heavy 500 pounds weight 200-300$ useless bikes from walmart/canadiantire. ( the last bike I got, looked like a space ship,I thought it would fly to the moon but...it could barely make it on grounds.)
Been doing that for years and i never knew other brands were better. Sad, invested so much in these pieces of junks! They last you 1 summer and you have to buy a new one the next.
Anyways, bought me a Trek 7.2 hybrid and it's pretty good...BUT! Had a flat and need help fixing it, but that's in another thread. ( where should I post this? )
Nice to meet you all and thanks for making this cool forum happen!!!
have a nice day all!
If you have particular difficulties with replacing / fixing the tyre, ask away in our Bicycle Mechanics subforum. For general info on how to fix a flat, see Park Tool Co. » Park Tool Co. for example.
Hi, I just need to know how to open ( detach) the tire/rim from the body. Since i've never seen such thing before, i guess i need a special tool and I was wondering if you could point me in the right direction. Thanks again!

I've had several since 1999 but have settled on my beloved 2001 Litespeed Tuscany and my latest, a 2013 Cannondale CAAD 10.
You probably have quick release levers on the wheels. Simply pull the lever out and turn it CCW a few turns and the wheel will drop out. Here's a link with more details. How To Use Bicycle Quick Releases
