I took my out of the car. Actually somebody else took it out for me. It was a struggle* to get it out. I feel bad for the helpful security guard, and for my bike that gets bumped this way and that.

Now I'm thinking...

I better learn to remove the pedals (maybe i only need to remove 1) and to either remove the front wheel or maybe (without much drama) remove or turn the handle bar perpendicular (i.e. parallel to the bike body). Hopefully I'll find a good instructional YouTube . 🔍😶

Messing with the handlebar with all those cables is probably the worse idea. I just heard that someone did it that way -- maybe I misunderstood and it's not so simple. 🤔

Better to try the front wheel option. Then I'll be able to turn the handlebar parallel to the frame. I'll need to check if what I saw in a video is applicable to my bike. Though I remember it required 2 guys to get the front wheel on when they assembled my . 😶

@evelyn Removing pedals are an almighty faf and foldable ones break easily under adult weight. Twisting the handebar will require an alan key but need to be tightened really well. Front wheels are really easy with QR. Although I don't know what the two guys needed help with!

The parts that were getting bumped and stuck getting in/out of the back seat area were the pedals and the handlebar. We struggled with the wheels too.

Yeah, I'm avoiding having to use an Allen key or any extra tool.

Dunno. Didn't look closely when they were attaching the front wheel. 1 was holding the frame and other was attaching the wheel.

Flip the bike upside down to pop the wheel off!

Can't. Mine has a little thingy on the handlebar. It'll get crushed. 😕

Aw boo!

@evelyn Check YouTube for some hints. The videos may not show your bike specifically, but they might give you some pointers. 🚲

Yup. Been watching some on Global Network's channel. And a bunch of others -- mostly about removing the front wheel, security, and other basics. 🤓

@evelyn There are several bike vloggers in the Philippines on YouTube that you might be interested in. They are pretty serious bikers but it looks like they have a lot of fun on their rides

On I've subscribed to channels Global Cycling Network, Park Tools, Sick Biker, Skills with Phil. Mostly educational. Not planning on racing or doing adventure/tricks, but it's nice understanding these things.

I'm not into or folks just wanting to be celebrities. 🤷‍♀️

I did* for a time binge-watched . Hmm... I haven't seen their for a long time now. Too much . 😅
