I've removed my wheels numerous times, but yesterday I attempted a quick wheel removal to have new rubber installed. I loosened the chain and attempted to pull out the axle but it will not move. I tried to smack it with a rubber mallet with no joy then sprayed it down with wd40. Nothing. I held a 2x4 up to the axle and hit it with a normal hammer a few times, again, no movement. Last night I purchased some penetrating oil, lubed it and lubed it again this morning. Again, nothing.

Any suggestions before I throw the pig on my trailer and take her somewhere?

Where are you spraying the oil at? If you are just spraying the ends it might not be making it to the bearings if they are what is sticking.


Oh, and put some grease on it when you reinstall it, that will help next time. I went through the same thing a while back when I took the wheel off for the first time since I purchased my bike.
I'm sure the oil isn't getting to the bearing because it isn't helping.

How did you end up getting yours off?
