    American Classic 225 12x142 axle removal

    I am trying to remove a 12x142 axle from an american classic disc 225 rear hub. I have removed the non-drive side end cap and unthreaded the lock nut(s). But the axle is not sliding out. I have pulled on the drive side axle, freehub body, and taped it with a rubber mallet to see if it needed unsetting? All to no avail.

    I am converting the wheel to 135mm to fit my frame, so have to get this axle out.
