Re: Rear axle bent..
disregard.. I got it.!!!
I soaked it in WD40, and waited a few minutes.. then Heated it up really good (wd40 is flamable duh)
Then hit it with a hammer to break it.. It got about 3 turns.. just enough to remove my rim.
I now upgraded to Kevlar lined tires and supposedly self sealing tubes... Ill see how this works.
