Tried removing a wheel on my friends bike and it had Campy brakes but it does not have the quick release like tghe Shimano brakes. The tires are 25c and i couldn't get it to slide thru the calipers so i end up leaking the air out to remove it. Is there are trick on Campy brakes?

You need both a *metric* crescent wrench and some *metric* left handed screw drivers.
