If the question arises why it is the front wheel to be removed, and not the rear, the answer is simple - simplicity and time saving (removed and installed). If you remove the rear wheel, then during transportation, you can damage the rear derailleur and then have to tinker with its adjustment. Therefore, it is recommended to remove only the front wheel, which will save you from any additional manipulations with the bike setup.
