How do you loosen the brakes on a bike tire?
To release the brakes, you will need to manually squeeze the brake arms together, and lift up on the noodle to remove the cable stop from the slot. I find it easiest to push the brakes together with the heels of my hands while I manipulate the cable with my fingers.
Can you convert bike wheel to quick release?

How do you take apart a bike wheel?
