    changing tire with internal gear hub

    I need to change the rear tire on my wifeís Electra beach cruiser. The back wheel has an internal gear hub. It looks like there is one cable that is running into the hub that I will have to remove in order to change the tire. Iíve never dealt with these internal gear hubs, is there anything I need to know before I start tinkering with it ?

    It's probably a Shimano Nexus 3spd hub, no? It's simpler than you think. You remove the control box before you take the wheel off. Cable stays attached to that. Change the tire, put the wheel back on, reattach the control box. Easy peasy.
