    removing a 20mm hub

    hi, i am an idiot. i am new to this 20mm hub deal. how do i get it off my fork? i undid the bolt on the one fork leg. now do i hammer it out or get a big hex wrench and unscrew the one side of the axl. i didn't have the right size hex to use last night so i couldnt test the hex "theory". and the hammer "theory" was scaring me as i didnt want to break my hub.

    Loosen pinch bolts on both drop outs, use hex wrench to loosen axle, then slide it out. If I remember right, the axle has reverse threads.

    When in doubt, ALWAYS use a hammer. That definitely sounds like the best method to uninstall a wheel.

    There may only be one pinch bolt, then use a hex key to loosen the axle, and it should push right out. I *think they are reverse threads* the axle shouldn't be very tight, so ease into it.

    haha, i had the hammer in one hand and the fork in the other ready to hammer that **** out of the hub. then i though. "what the hell am i doing?" everything on a bike uses an allen wrench. thats when i knew something was wrong and needed to ask a question.
