Wheel removal with Tektro Mini-V brakes
I've just got a flat on my new touring bike and can't figure out how the heck to release the brake pads so I can remove the wheel.
The brakes are Tektro Mini-V with the 'travel agent' (cable winds around this to give extra braking leverage - not all Mini-V's have it). The front brake has both an inline barrel adjuster and quick release feature. But, the rear has the flat and it doesn't appear to have either of these features. It's probably something simple and obvious and I'd be embarrassed to take it to the bike shop. Or, do I have to remove and install the wheel only when the tire is deflated?
