    remove front wheel with Avid BB5 disc brake

    I need to remove the front wheel for transport of the bike, how do I get it off with the avids on there? I'm used to V-brakes, what do I have to disconnect to get the wheel off? Or does it just come out? I took a look at it and there doesn't seem to be anything around the rotor it almost looks like it just slips out after the wheel quick-disconnect is released.

    Just be careful to slide the rotor back between the pads when you replace the wheel...that's the tricky part (if you can call it that).
