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)?

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.

Even this ol' spanner (wrench) spinner picked up some new tips from Paul's video. Not having those wood blocks Paul uses, I use a bike lift to elevate the entire bike and a scissors jack under the rear wheel to un-weight it for bolt removal and then lowering the wheel to pull it out from under the bike. As Pretty Wife says when I'm helping in the yard and make a comment about the way she's going about it..."There's more than one way to garden."
Thanks for taking the time and great effort to make that video Paul.
