@Wisconsin_53122 I just gave this a go and got held up by a few things. 1. Unplugging the larger square plug, I couldn't for the life of me figure out the mechanism where you "push the black button" as @njcustom instructed. The one youtube video about this didn't specify either. In a classic move I gently forced it with pliers and broke the tab. I have a feeling this isn't the end of the world but it was frustrating. The black button interlocks with the white tab, and it's not really a button, honestly I think it's still awkward to push even knowing where it is, but it's directly on top middle after you pull out the white tab. 2. Removing the tire, even with a set of tire spoons and soapy water, is not easy. No caution was mentioned here, and even though I tried to be gentle with it I scuffed the finish on the inside of the rim which could potentially be problematic when the new tire is on. If anyone out there has a video/tutorial on actually removing the tire where you could see the judo kung fu moves needed to pry off the tire without damaging the rim, I'd love to see. @ashewheeler & @njcustom had me convinced this was easy but it's not the easiest thing if you've never popped a racing tire off a rim.
