After I cut the bolt through the collar it twisted out quite easily, thankfully..
It's stupid short, didn't have too far to pull it.. :lol:
Although, there's loads of gluey type stuff all over the place.. including on the post, down the tube.. it's pretty manky generally..

Checked I'm turning it the right way on the Avalanche frame. .

Think it was anti-clockwise to undo.. that sound right??

Yeah.. it came out (with a bit of a bang... and turning it the right way :lol: )

Frame's being checked out tomo and will scrap it if necessary.. but it'll never be ridden hard anyway - road, singletrack, nothing too hard fast or gnarly...

well, as i said dont ride it hard and it *should* be fine, obviously lbs will advise more accurately but you could just build it and replace front end as and when
