A couple thing I have been doing the hard way. 1. Removing rim locks when I change my tire. note; You can do it without taking them out which makes ot much easier. 2. Loosening my chain tensioning bolts all the way to remove my rear wheel. note; Just pull the shaft out, then you can slide the wheel forward to remove the chain. This also makes it easier becuase you don't have to retension the chain unless it is loose. Just thought I would share with you some of the things I have been doing the hard way.
