Default Video - Rear Wheel Removal

I have had many people ask me if I can make a video showing how I remove the rear wheel on my Cross Country Tour.
I was a little hesitant at first because I ride with a car tire on the back and I didn't want to start any wars, but many viewers have been wanting this so here it is.
Click here to watch the video.
I hope you enjoy it, let me know what you think.
Thanks
Paul

Great job Paul.
Only complaint is pulling the treaded part of the axle thru the wheel. I would be scared of nicking or dinging one of the threads.
Its too bad the vic engineers attached the brake line to the caliper the way they did.

@Pauljp, you did it again: clear, concise, and well-shot and well-edited. Superb.

Thanks Bill, lots of camera and lighting setups for a bunch of 2 second shots on this video. Especially for the part of putting it back together. I think this is the most clips I've had to do for a single video.

Take pleasure in that I'm sure it's a great benefit to the community. If I still owned an XCT, I'd be mighty tempted to buy a scissor jack and remove the wheel myself -- something I've never done on any bike -- prior to tire changes.

You going to do a front-wheel video (or did you already do it, and I missed it)?

Cheers,

Bill P.

Heya Paul, good work. Did you remove both the shock and the linkage bolts? Last time I changed my tire (September) I removed the shock bolt only and I didn't have enough clearance to get the axle out (I ended up taking the pipes off again).

[EDIT] It appears that is the case. I'll have to try this next time.

Yes I did. I figure I'm already on the ground, I may as well remove both of them, and as you mentioned, removing one won't quite give you enough room.
Thanks for watching.

That's very well done, too. I probably saw it, back in the day, and then the brain-cell cobwebs took over. Thanks, Paul.
