Can you change an inner tube without removing the wheel?
To replace the inner tube, you must remove the wheel from the bicycle. But to patch the inner tube, you need only expose it, without removing the wheel. A wheel with axle nuts is harder to remove and replace than one with a quick release.

Can you fix a puncture without removing the wheel?
Contrary to popular belief, you don’t need to take the wheel off your bike – or even the tyre completely off the wheel – to fix a puncture. First, you need to get the punctured tube out of the tyre. Flip the bike, grab your tyre levers and hook the first one under the bead of tyre.
