ive had a look around and have had a go at removing the lockring but with no luck.

what exactly is meant by using a hammer and screwdriver? ive tried putting a screwdriver in one of the 4 notches on the lock ring and whack it with the hammer, done it many times but no joy.

    I'm sure you know a track hub lockring is left hand threaded, so turn clockwise to remove.

    IF you didn't know that, then NOW it will be really tight!
