    First you have to unscrew the 4 screws at the bottom of the fork to were there pretty loose then you remove the big axle, it should then come apart real simple. I had the same problem, but i eventually figured it out. hope this helps.

    Unscrew the pinch bolt on each dropout, no need to completely unscrew them, just have them real loose. Now simply unscrew one of the black caps at the end of the axle completely off with a hex key, and slide the axle out of the fork/hub.

    It's that simple, you'll wonder why you just didn't do that in the first place.
