    How to remove thru axle?

    Sorry, it's a noob question but I haven't owned a MTB in 10 years. It's a 2010 FXR and I don't know how to remove my wheels! lol The fork is a Fox Float. Tried searching the web, couldn't find anything..

    right, if you are still wanting to get the wheel off...

    ...there are 3 parts to loosen off: 2 levers, one on either fork leg - pull each one away from the fork leg to undo them.

    then there's the axle itself to unscrew: look closely on the NON-disc side on the axle and you can flip out a mini lever. Unscrew this a few turns (i.e. counter-clockwise)...then u can pull the axle out.

    now take the wheel out.

    I already figured it out. I just needed to put more force into it, I was doing things right but it just seemed pretty tight. Thanks though!
