Ran into a hurdle trying to get the front wheel off to change a flat on my 69 raleigh sports. Loosened the two front bolts but it doesnt want to come off. I spent alot of time looking on how to remove one of theses on google but nothing comes up, just a bunch of tutorials on how to twist off a quick release.. pretty annoying
As sailorbenjamin says, make sure you visit the Sheldon Brown website, the cones have a lip that fits into a recess in the forks to prevent wheel from falling out when someone forgets to tighten the nuts. The hub has a right and left side also. The right side cone bottoms out on the axle so the bearing adjustments are done with the left cone.
thanks guys.....yes there is an adjustable nut on the left and non adjustable on the right.... I tried to loosen the adjustable one until i could wiggle it a little, and the one on right stayed really tight so i wedged a wrench between the spokes and the fork to to spread the fork out a little, then it popped right out. Seems like you dont even need two nuts to hold the front wheel in the way its so tight. Very interesting suttle design that i guess makes the bike more safer to ride.
