take the wheel off, and put tighten the non drive side nut on the INSIDE of your dropout. so your wheel will be coming out of the side of your dropout and won't be inside the frame. tighten the tits out of it then try to loosen your driver side lock nut

i think i got what you're saying, my old Crupi hubs were the same way...vice grips to hold the axle (put something soft around the axle if you can so you don't damage your threads) and another pair of pliers on the jam nut..

This or go to a local shop with an AXLE VISE that is meant to hold it for this very reason. They shouldn't charge you to loosen the nut.

dont do this. No matter how much soft shit you use it will still fuck up your threads

Yeaaaaaaaah boyyyy!

i've done it plenty of times without fucking up my threads, hell i still have my Crupi hubs that i've been doing it to for the last 15 years, if there's no other solution then you gotta get desperate.
