Did you find a solution to this? Decided a few days ago to take a closer look at my sons Kinetix hub to try to give you an answer, and I`ll try to finish it today, he wants his bike back.
I have done this before on some MTB hub, and I can not remember having any problems finding a tool. I am sure I used the biggest (10mm) allen key.
Trying to do so on this hub is not working. The 10mm slides trough with no resistance.
I agree with fietsbob it could be a 12 point rather than 6, but it is not a 10mm.
Only 12mm I have is not long enough to reach where it should. It is quite short, a socket type of allen key bought to use with a tourche wrench.
My guess is that what you need is a long enough 12mm allen key.
Did you try the Bicycle Mechanics thread? Didi you find a solution?
