I have a Canyon Commuter 7.0 which uses IXOW Wheelguard Gravity skewers and nut. I want to take my front wheel off but am unable to loosen the nut on the front skewer.
The standard procedure is to flip the bike upside down and then loosen the nut. This does not work. The instructions state that if the nut cannot be loosened, it should be tightened a little before loosening as doing this should release the locking mechanism. This approach worked for the nut on the seatpost clamp (which uses the same type of nut), but has not worked for the front wheel.
The recommended tightness for the front wheel nut is 5-7Nm. I've already increased it to 8Nm when tightening in an attempt to loosen - it slipped at this point, so I don't want to try much more force in case I damage it.
I've tried flipping the bike upside down a few times, to no avail. What else can I do to try and loosen the nut?
