    • Facing your bike, straddle your front wheel between your knees.

    • Locate the front brake at the top of the fork. It will more than likely look like the picture on your left.

    • Since the tire is normally wider than the space between the brake pads, you must first release the tension in the brake wire. To do this, run your right hand under both brake calipers and push them inwards towards one another.

  2. Trek 820 Spokes Replacement: step 2, image 1 of 2 Trek 820 Spokes Replacement: step 2, image 2 of 2
    • With the brake wire sufficiently loosened, unhook the metal tube that contains the brake wire (called the noodle) from the brake wire holder using your left hand.

    • The brake will now be open wide enough to permit removal of the wheel.

    • Find the quick release lever on the outside of the bike's fork on the right hand side. Turn the level counter clockwise loosening the lever until it comes off.

    • After the quick release lever is removed, the wheel can be separated from the front fork.

    • In reassembling the wheel to the bike, perform the steps in reverse order.

    • With the axle all the way into the fork slots, tighten the quick release lever into the fork end securely. It should take a modest amount of force applied to tighten the axle to the fork.

    • Squeeze the brake calipers together and return the cable noodle back into the holder.

    • Make sure you go back, and check to make sure its snug so that the wheel has no way of coming back off.
