Only the problem of trying to get the bolt holes in the wheel, disc and hub
all lined up. The best way to try it out is to change a wheel - but wait
until the middle of winter, after dark, in the rain on a muddy unlit country
The Ur-q tool kit is supposed to contain a threaded rod that you replace the
first wheel nut with when you change a wheel. This keeps the disc from
moving and allows positive location of the wheel when you replace it. I say
'supposed' because its usually the first thing that gets lost - mine hasnt
got the original one, just one that I made and I've never seen an original
in the flesh (so to speak).
