    There is the main bolt that threads through from the driveside, and a nut on the non-drive side.
    The main bolt undoes from the nut with an allen key (8mm if i remember). The nut should only have two flat spots, so grab onto those witha spanner.
    The Part the allen key goes into isnt on the "head"/wider bit of the bolt like a normal bolt, it's on the non-drive side, at the end of the bolt, if that makes sense. So you undo the bolt from the same side as the spanner is on, on the non-drive side. And because it's on the other side, turn the allen key clockwise rather than anticlockwise with the spanner kept still. I needed to take my cranks off as well, the main pivot bolt wouldnt come out without hitting my chainring.

    Cheers for help and advice folks. got it off. seems my frame is cracked.. no warranty and none left at trek'fisher so ive spied a frame i might buy. Does anyone know the head angle and seat angle of the roscoe and the bottom bracket size as i found it nearly spot on and hoping my new venture is similar..

    Sorry to hear about your frame turbo. I tried to google up a geometry chart, but didn't see one.

    Pretty sure someone did it in the 650B forum. It will fit fine (my son has one and I tested the best I could with a non ABP wheel) and the only issue might be seat post contact with big volume 650 tires. If you have a Fox 26" fork plenty of 650B tires will clear the bottom of the crown at bottom out but the bigger ones will hit and drag. The tallest 650B tire is the Schwalbe Nobby Nick 2.35" and I tested this on my sons Roscoe Float 140 and it clears the arch fine by about 3mm but hits the bottom of the crown. With some force I could still roll the bike but a 5mm internal spacer would be recommended. A Pacenti Neo-Moto 2.3 works fine and I've been using that on my converted Prophet with a Talas 140.

    Just want to be sure that is going to work becuase do not want to waste my money. Becuase I live in PR and shipping the wheels back is expensive becuase no lbs here stocks 65b wheels or tires.

    To be totally accurate, no. Actually they are all 10mm in the rear, 9mm is front only (9x100mm) but people erroneously refer to both as 9mm so often that I overlooked it. So what you need is a 10x135mm hub for the rear, and assuming you still have the factory fork, 15x100mm front. You'll sometimes see rear hubs advertised as 9x135, but it's just an error, as they are actually 10x135mm. Hope that clarifies it!

    I see. As if this wasn't confusing enough to begin with. So when referring to "Standard QR Rear Hub" the standard is 10x135mm?

    In other words; will theese wheels fit my Roscoe? SPANK Bike's website/tools for superheroes

    Unless I'm overlooking something in the specs, it looks like that wheelset you linked is only available as a 12x142 rear?

    I guess you overlooked this; "Standard QR Rear Hub Adapter Kit Incl."

    Well, I did see that, but it's listed under 'Front', not rear.

    Anyone else having problems with 2010 frames? My 2010 Roscoe II has developed a creak, but I can't find a crack.

    My 2010 Roscoe frame has just cracked (on the drive side chain stay and on the bar connecting the two chain stays). Trek have been reasonable with respect to the warranty. They offered me a new 26" remedy frame or a discount off a new bike from their current range. I guess they are all out of replacement chain stays.

    I see from previous posts on this site I am not the first to crack the chain stay, but I am not convinced this is a problem unique to the Roscoe as I have also broken my 2005 Specialized Enduro chain stay (Specialized replaced the chain stay under warranty). Admittedly I got a lot more use from the Roscoe than some who posted. If it had broken in the first year of riding I expect I would be singing a different song.

    I am sorry to retire the bike. I got to ride it on a lot of great trails in England, Wales, Utah and Colorado and have a lot of good memories from my time on the bike. It had a great agile feel and was at its best on twisty, fast, singletrack. It never felt as capable in the rocks as the enduro and was less composed, but felt way quicker and more fun on less aggressive trails.

    RIP - A great bike
