Should the axle just slide out the right side after unscrewing? The axle isn’t unscrewing anymore, yet it refuses to come out. Any tips would be great thanks!!

Yes it should slide out, it can rust and then it seizes in the bearing inners within the hub. The whole wheel may need to come out so you can force the axle out of the hub after the brake has been taken off. Always wipe some grease on it when reinstalling to sto repeats.

Thanks Kommando! If it unscrews without issue, what’s the axle actually rusted to? Sorry, I’m trying to get an image in my mind to figure out what it’s actually rusted to!!

Thanks so much again!

The 2 bearings inside the hub have a spacer in between them, the axle is seized inside and the spacer is free to turn.

Alex: I have a slightly different opinion. Given that all the bits are pressed together through the center of the wheel when the axle is threaded in, if you are able to unthread the axle so that it has come part way out it must be coming through all center the bits because those bits cannot move laterally. I think is just tight but free to be drawn out with some effort.

Without frequent roadside repairs there is no fun in riding!

Hi Gordo!!

The problem turned out to be the speedometer gearbox was on there super tight. I greased the axle, and managed to remove it by lightly tapping it down the centre axle using a hide mallet. Re-greased everything and it all comes apart much easier!!

Next step is to learn how to replace a tire while not ruining 3 brand new tubes (grumble grumble).

Hi Alex,

Here, local garages and tyre shops fit tyres they supply for free, £15 for a tyre you supply. Given decent tubes are £15 ...

Regards,

Ouch! $15 a wheel labor here to change a tire and tube. It would pay you to upgrade your tire-changing equipment!

I stopped believing for a little while this morning. Journey is really going to be upset.

Get yourself a Breezer tyre tool .
Photos & instructions about 1/2 way through this thread mounting new tyres on 70 A65L
Some where on the web there was instructions for making one from some alloy rod.

Found it
Dans bike repairs page.
I had a flat on the M20 on a club run some long time ago & another member popped myself & the wheel into his chair to go home & replace the tube while the rest of the group had a long lunch stop.
His eyes popped out of his head when he saw the tyre off, tube replaced & tyre back on before the kettle had boiled for our cuppa.
He borrowed it and made some slightly longer ones , about 12" against the 8.5" original . I tried one of his latter on and despite what I had been telling girls for decades ,the extra few inches did make a big difference
HE also did a bigger version again in steel this time then made 2 steel rings welded together at right angles so one went over the handle end while the other end slipped over the axel thus making tapping the tyre off even easier
But even with the short original, you will never ever pinch a tube again.

And another variation on the same theme @ $ 40 ( inc postage ) it is about 1.5 x a tube price Stubby on amazon

You’re amazing thanks. Getting one very soon! In the meantime, I’m glad I did take it in, as they found a defect with the front tyre. Whew!
