    Undo some thing.
    Hit something.
    Un Clip something.

    Looked on their web site for a manual?

    there's nothing obvious, that i can see anyway!!

    the online manual says -

    Each year, lubricate the wheel bearings. Special tools and skills are necessary to lubricate the
    bearings, so only your dealer should do this procedure. Some Bontrager wheels use sealed
    bearings that do not require grease every year. If you do not know which type of bearings your
    wheels have, speak to your dealer.








  • there's 1 spacer type tube between the 2 end caps, everything turns as one. there are no indentation or flat egdes on the end caps
