Hello, you posted how to remove a axle from a Specialized Stout Hub. I'm not sure of what you meant when you wrote "insert a 20mm axle into the end cap 90 degrees to the axis of the hub". Please explain. I understand you to have meant to insert the 20mm axle into the end cap perpendicular to the hub. Am I understanding your post? Will a 20mm steel rod work, I do not have a 20mm axle to use? Also a drift is mentioned, in a subsequent post, to hammer the axle out. Is a drift the same as a punch? Here is a copy of your post below.
Thanks in advance for your help
"Take a 20mm axle (I use a marz. one, something like a boxxer maxle won't work) and insert it just a little ways into the end cap (not into the bearing). Push down on the axle (90 degrees to the hub axis) and the end cap will pop out."
Please explain how to reinstall the axle, bearings & end cap.
I really need your help
