So I removed my front wheel like i have many times before. I got my own tire change tools and am learning how to do that process. I got the front tire done (after alot longer than I expected) and now when im trying to install the front wheel/axle the axel doesnt fit. Based on my diagonsis it appears that even though I loosened all the pinch bolts that the bottom part of the fork didnt actually release. Has this happened to anyone? Is it safe to use a screwdriver and rubber mallet to slightly pry it open so the axle slides back in safely ?
