Dug my Enduro 05 expert out of retirement for the summer and gave it a clean etc, put it all back together.

Now I have not done anything wrong with this bike, its a heavyweight XC bike and nothing else, nothing brutal has ever happened to this thing. The mangled 20mm axle hex key hole is superficial and the bolts are never tightened to the point of causing damage to the fork lowers.
