Profile hub. Axel and bearing removel. Help

Is there an easy way to remove the female axle and bearing from a front hub?

Thanks in advance;)

The axle has collars internal.

Pick one side, put it onto a vice or large socket lined up on the edge of the bearing seat. Bang on the axle with a hammer. The axle collar will pop the bearing out.

Check out the beta for sale section, look for Profile or Crupi axles. You'll see what they look like, and it will make more sense.

A couple things to try.

1. I think it's a 19mm socket. It should be pretty close to the diameter of the outside of the bearing. If not, find one that matches up. You can use that to help hammering it in.
2. Use the axle and the axle nuts, with large washers. Tighten the nuts down, that will drive them in.
