- Can't remove rockshox 15mm axle
Had the same problem with them on my hire bikes. As before, apparently not covered by warranty. Damage due to over tightening of the Maxle.
Just make sure it’s fully wound in and then let the QR bit look after stopping it from unwinding itself. As v10 says, don’t swing on the end like a Monkey.
I took a junior hacksaw to mine to straighten the slots up and have been fine since as I’m careful with the torque I apply when tightening the maxle now.

Reading this thread makes me think I’ve been doing something wrong. I just tighten up the collar by hand then flick the QR lever over so that it fits in the slot. Removing is just the reverse i.e. flip the lever up and unscrew the collar by hand.
Reading this I wonder whether I’m supposed to use the lever (in the slot) to screw and unscrew the axle? That collar looks pretty thin to be taking and force to me though.
