Just to add to the discussion many of the bolts on the bike will have blue loctite on them(the not so permanent kind). Although its not always necessary a propane torch works miracles on that stuff(must use a handheld propane torch and not Oxy-acetylene because the propane torch won't get hot enough to destroy the powder coat on the frame or blue the bolts but will release the loctite). I did this on my fender strut bolts and they came out with little effort. Before the torch I had to really bear down hard and a couple of the strut bolts and that involved a lot of cussing and cold beer.(ok the cold.beer had nothing to do with the situation at hand haha!) But the other four came out easy once I.heated them.
