This is an instructional video to show how to remove the rear wheel with a Shimano Alfine 8 internally geared hub (also works for Nexus 8 speed hub).  The video goes step by step through the removal and then re-assembly of the rear wheel including disengaging the cable on the Alfine 8 hub.  We have a second, abbreviated video for the Alfine 11 which focuses solely on disengaging and re-engaging of the shift cable for the Alfine 11 rear hub.

This is an instructional video showing you how to disengage the shifter cable on a Shimano Alfine 11 rear wheel to allow rear wheel removal on your Bike Friday.

Here is a video that shows how to remove an Alfine 11 wheel with Gates Carbon Belt Drive from your Bike Friday pakiT.
