Excel rims with pro series hubs The other day I noticed that my rear wheel had some side to side play in it. I loosened up the axle nut and could barely remove the axle. After a while of pounding it out I finally got it. I can see that the bearing is shot but cannot remove the spacers. I tried a bearing puller, but the one my auto parts store had was 1/16" too short to catch the bottom side of the spacer. Any suggestions on how to remove these and get my bike back on the road?
