(I used the "search" function and tried to review past posts too but did not find what I looked for....)
My 2004 KM is set with BB7/160mm, it's a "L" size and with old monkey nuts on. It's a well known fact that removing the rear wheel is not user-friendly since one has to loosen the brake caliper and rotate it upward before sliding the wheel out of the dropouts.
This issue may be adressed by using "wavy" rotor instead of circular one, or by sawing the dropout so the wheel does not have to be moved backward to get out of the frame.
I have another option remaining in the depth of my subconcious but can't say if it's true or not : going from 160 to 180mm rotor will cure the dreaded rear wheel removal syndrom... Seems to good to be true, can anyone confirm this third option ?
Please note that my question does not concern recent (2010-2011-2012 ?) KM design that have a different rear brake mount than previous ones as far as I know.
