    The nut's that press against the bearing cup are stuck so tight. Any help on how to loosen this mfers would be helpful. I'm about to just toss this wheel out if I can't get them off today.bike ****.jpgbike **** 2.jpg

    I could be wrong, but from the picture it appears to be cross-threaded.

    Try a little penetrating oil. PB Blaster is a good one. Liquid Wrench is another.

    If you use a crescent wrench, keep your thumb on the adjustment wheel to keep the slack out of the jaws.

    These thing's are so stuck, I'll try to go get some liquid wrench. I might just take the wheel into the bike shop, I really can't get them loose.

    The first pic looks mega cross threaded. Are both sides stuck?

    Is this a wheel that you have had apart before, or is this the first time?

    Yeah I had it apart before, I rode around without a locknut on 1 side and the cones just completely locked up. I can't get them off I'm going to try to take it to the bike shop this week or just replace the whole rear wheel.
