    Compact wrench solution for large axle nuts (hub motor kits)

    I needed a wrench that was not too heavy but gave my wife enough leverage to loosen the axle nuts on her Golden Motor direct drive hub.
    What has worked well is to take an old wrench (21mm is correct but 13/16" also works (tight)). I cut the wrench so that it has about a 3" arm.
    She can easily leave this in the side of her battery bag until she needs to remove the rear wheel.
    She then removes her seat post, slides it over the wrench and uses it as a lever arm.
    A side benefit is that the remaining part of the wrench has a long enough lever for me to carry it on my bike.
    Thanks, Chris
