He-he, I'm just trying to visualize what a bicycle would look like that was put together with "the bolt." But I suppose you could always try a penetrate oil like WD-40 to loosen it up. Be careful though, it sounds like the whole bike will fall apart. Smile

Lube the heck out of it with WD 40. Soak, soak, soak. Get more leverage with a longer wrench/ratchet. The good old cheater bar!
