Post Stuck in shock hardware
Recently purchased a new mountain bike frame, and i wanted to change out the shock. So i was able to get one of the mounting point hardware out, without any issues, but the other is seized in there. The bolt will rotate but will not come out of the frame regardless of tapping it with a hammer, or trying to unthread the other side. I was hoping that someone would have some suggestions on how to remove this piece of hardware.
Thanks

I'm guessing:
1. A Bigger Hammer
2. More Force
3. Your LBS

If this was my issue..........option 1 or 2 usually does the trick. Option 3 could be a winner too, just don't tell anyone.

Good Luck
