stinky 06- can't take off front tire!!!

I am trying to take off my front tire and am having problems. I used the quick release tab and unscrewed that bar that goes in between the tire but it is still connected to the forks and the wheel doesn't come off. How do I get it off. It is a new bike for me.

If you have V-brakes, you need to disconnect the arms by unhooking the cable between the brake arms. If that's not it (or you have discs) try and unscrew the skewer completely, and slide it out through the hub. This should completely disconnect the wheel from the fork and allow it to slide free.

Lol. I didn't know what a Stinky was. I didn't assume he had through-axles, because regular QR skewers can unscrew and pull through the hub too. Probably doesn't have V's though. Thanks Bikepedia!

I was afraid it was that goofy QR20 setup when I read his confusion.

2006 OE Dropoff Triple manual from Marzocchi. Refer page 18.

Stinky's are beast. I rode one when I was scoping out to buy my Kona Dawg.
