Really strange it's not just sliding out since there's nothing on the OD that would cause it to hang up.

If you rotate the axle as you pull out does that help?

Is it binding with the weight of the wheel when you pull it out of the one side of the fork? by r083rt

Thanks Robert..... Got it resolved. I used a deep 17mm socket as a drift and out it came. I think there was a bunch grease outside of the bearing that got sticky and that was keeping it from moving.

Everything was in great shape in there and no problem so I think it was just sticky.

Got the forks lowered and I'm off an running and can actually kind of, sort of touch the ground now. smile

Glad you got it resolved. Looks great.

How much did you lower the forks? Probably should do the same to mine. by marret

I can see how much you pushed the forks up in the trees. Be careful that the tire doesn't bottom out on the fender under heavy load. I talked to a suspension guy when I was considering doing this and he warned to watch out for this.

BTW - The bike looks fantastic - i can't wait to see pictures of it in action!

Not sure why my replies aren't showing up but sorry if multiple one's do.

I lowered them 3cm and it has made a noticeable difference in height and in quicker steering response.

Thanks Snow Dawg, I didn't consider that but I'll keep an eye out. My previous HP2 was lowered the same 3cm without any problems but I'll admit to not putting that bike through any real suspension travel tests. This one will so I'm glad to know to look for it.
