- Bodgers – 29er RockShox Lower removal
Yeah, figured as much. Was trying to reach it with a wee spanner, but acutely aware of the alloy-ness of the bolt and didn’t want to round anything. A carefully bent ring spanner might work, but I don’t have one of those to hand either (or the strength to bend it)
Socket purchase it is, I guess.
It’s kind of a neat design, thinking about it. Means the major parts are all the same, just the change in lowers.Posted 4 years agomick_rSubscriber
My deep sockets weren’t deep enough!
It was late at night – so after much cursing I ended up taking a cheap old 10mm socket, drilling out the 1/4″ square drive, filing off the chrome plating, finding a bit of tube sort of the right diameter, squashing tube until it sort of gripped the outside of the socket, attacking that mess with a blowlamp and silver solder to make a ghetto long socket. Drilled a cross hole at the other end of the tube to shove in an allen key as a tommy bar.
Then proceeded to get the damper oil all down my trouser leg rather than in the bucket!
