Mounting a rear wheel with quick release skewer is simple, although the gears make it a slightly more complicated
Removing a rear wheel is a simple task, although the gear mechanism makes it a slightly more complicated than removing the front wheel.
Wheel spokes connect hubs to rims and their tension keeps the wheel in shape. The tension can be adjusted with a spoke key.
There are two types of fixing for a front wheel. Hexagonal nuts threaded on a solid axle, or a quick release skewer system that runs through the centre of a hollow axle.
