    New question here. How to tighten a main axle on a Superfly 100?

    Hello everyone,

    My friend dropped by today with his beautiful carbon Superfly 100. I took it for a quick spin and realized the tail end was loose. Upon closer inspection it seemed the wiggle was originating from his main pivot axle (the one just above the BB). I wheeled it into the garage, removed his cranks and said WTF?! The non-drive side has the appropriate hex key / socket head to tighten things up, but the drive side is, well its smooth! You tighten the non-drive side and the drive side just spins. Is there some proprietary tool to fix this or am I just missing something?

    Open end wrench and allen both from drive side. No need to remove the crank

    From the non-drive side, I think is what Duke meant to say.
    Worked at Trek/Fisher dealer 2008-2013. Only a little biased.
