self mending forks
got some dt swiss 150s, hit tree and couldnt take 15mm axle out without force, no way it was going back in. took off bike and left in corner of house until get round to sending off to be looked at. few months later and got round to it and woah! axle goes right in straight as anything.Posted 4 years ago
wtf? recon they have stress releived or what? looking them up and down and stanchions and everything look straight.
Or you crashed, bit stressed, probably in pain, high on adrenaline and can’t manage to screw in the fiddley bit. Months later, calm, collected and paying attention you can do it.
Psychosomatic damage? Hmmmm, now there’s a thought
Did you treat the thread with lube/ penetrating oil a few months ago?
Not this thread, obviously, the axle thread?
Deffo not, it has one of those DT Swisscheese RWS thingies, keep it well lubed or the handle snaps off when you look at it sideways.Posted 4 years ago
