Posting a few clear pictures may help others to help you further!Hi All, Need to remove rear wheel on my Viking Harrier. It has a disc brake and I cannot figure out how to get the wheel off. Anyone out there had this problem?
Some useful info there, but I wouldn't advise anybody to use a stand to remove and reinstall a wheel with a hub-motor. It's almost impossible to get the wheel back in properly unless you have one of those relatively expensive stands that allow you to rotate the bike upside down and hold it there. You can't do that on any of the cheap ones.Posting a few clear pictures may help others to help you further!
Mine is/was very simple to do, but if you have the motor in the rear wheel assembly, you have to know both the correct method for disassembly and even more important the final assembly must be very tight, as if you get that wrong, its possible on some bikes that the axle will revolve and rip out all the power and hall effect cables from the motor!!! On some, that may turn the motor into a piece of junk!!
Many have experienced that!!! But me not yet!!
Repairing a rear wheel puncture can be done without removing the rear wheel on most bikes, as long as no oil or grease gets on the inner tube, as it rots rubber.....
I bought a special bike stand that holds the frame for me at the correct height for working as my back is not very good anymore!
Not expensive, around 30 UK Pounds. That way a puncture is no problem.
Some people, to give them a smaller chance of a puncture, cut a small piece out of a worn out tyre, and fit the rest between the tyre on the bike and the tube, so that a thorn/or nail has a longer distance to cover, so to say.
Cut off just enough to leave an inch or so "overlap", as once pressure is added, that will be taken up from the slack point. I hope that makes sense....
