oh no, that may end up damaging the chassis if you shear the head of the screw off with the chisel. you basically unscrew the bolt by tapping a chisel at an angle in the right direction at the edge of the screw head to unscrew it. its actually not as hard as you think. I guess it could be tricky if you havent got a small enough chisel.
Like ai says if you have a very small wheel cutter bit for a dremel you could cut into the face of the screw head so it can accept a flat head driver. but you may end up leavin a few nice cutting marks on the chassis.
I just hope your m8 didnt use the extra strong red thread lock!

Hello

I am just wondering if anybody uses front shock spring on the rear when using the new rear suspention mounts? as if i use the small graphite parts that attach to the arm it seems to make the rear shocks very hard due to the compression, which also make adjusting the droop inacurate, or have i done something wrong?

It's actually some greyish stuff. It's not blue and it's not Red, but it sure as hell is strong. The whole threaded part of the SG crank is still covered in the rest of the dried up stuff of it.
