Need to see how to remove a stuck bolt on a BMX hub?
If you have ever ran a female axle on your bike, there’s a chance at some point you might have run into an issue where your bolt on one side gets stuck and you can’t get it out, with the other side loose and the axle spinning. The guys at Lux BMX put together this video with a great trick for getting the bolt off without stripping the hub down to clamp down on the axle (likely causing damage in the process). In this video Evan Jaques shows you how to remove a stuck bolt on a BMX hub by simply connecting the loose side to one side of the dropout, and then loosening the stuck bolt. By doing this, you prevent the axle from spinning, which is a factor in why it’s tricky to break the bolt free.
This can also be applied to a rear hub as well, just connect one side of the hub to the dropout on your frame instead of the fork.
Quick, easy and doesn’t damage the hub!

Shout out to Lux BMX with this great tip. We can imagine this will save a lot of headaches and hassle for riders out there. It could also save an axle or two from being destroyed in the process, haha.
