Safety Wire...

So I've gotta take the wheels off our new bike (which is safety wired). :confused1

My question is this... is there an easy way to do this? Do I just have to cut the safety wires and re-do them when I re-asseble our bike? And whats the best wire to use for safety wiring a bike?

OK, so that was more than one question...

patrick is probably the man to talk to on that one.

i believe you can get wire that is actually sold as "Safety wire" for motorcycles.

Yep you gotta cut of the wire if its hold the bolts in place.Tod you can use my safety wire tool whenever we're at the same place. The wire is just a really small gauge wire you can buy at cyclegear or basically hardware store.

Be aware though that the CMRA has changed the rule on the use of "clips".

I've got safety wire in stock if you need it, pliers too.
If you come by I can also give you a quick course on safety wiring.
