When looking at your brakes, there is a 1/4 circle metal tube (noodle) thingy that your brake cable meets up with. That sit's in another piece of metal box like thingy that is attached to the left brake arm. Grab the brakes and squeeze them together with one hand. Grap the noodle with the other. Wiggle your noodle (seriously!) and it should come out of the metal box thingy. There is a groove in the metal box thingy and the cable will slide through. This will release the cable from the lever brake arm and allow enough room to slide the wheel out w/o having to deflate tires.

This is incredibly difficult to explain. Take it to your nearest bike shop and have them show you how to release your brake cable using the quick release!

Good Luck
