Does anyone know how to remove the qr end caps from the Miche XM50 hub. I'm told it should be possible to remove the red inserts by hand but I haven't been able to.

    Not by hand. Clamp end cap in a vice and pull. The end cap is in two parts. Now knock out the QR insert.

    Hand pull end caps, are that i
    theory. Most brands that claim that never quite manage it in reality. Dt swiss is a great example. some times the end cap is so stuck you end up damaging it removing it.

    Thanks Malcolm. So clamp and pull the outer black cap?
  • Yes. It pretty simple once you've done it.
