It's only tricky the first couple of times. You'll need a wrench with you if you're out on the road, unlike a quick release wheel. That's the biggest difference. When you put the wheel back in the dropouts then you'll have to readjust the shift cable carefully. If you start to ride again and the shifting isn't right, just pull over and readjust. Better to tweak it a couple of times than ride it out of adjustment.
