Trainer Tire

Hi all! This is my first real attempt at a cycling season. I love doing 20-30 mile rides on some of the nice days we've been having. I have a Forza F-1 Trainer that I'm using on cold rainy days. I know how to get the rear axle off but is there an easy way to swap out another tire? Do I have to detach all the gears? This would be annoying if I'm on the trainer one day and outside the next.

If it is difficult, are there any videos you know of to help me learn to change out the rear tire?

I ride a 2009 Fuji Newest 2.0 if that helps at all.

Thanks everyone!

I'd just Google this- there are plenty of YouTubes that demonstrate tire changes. If you're going to be doing a lot of swapping, I'd consider getting a second wheel (with cassette, of course) and mount the trainer tire on that. Much easier to swap out a wheel than change a tire!
