Front Axle Pinchbolt loose!!

Hey guys,

Just a heads up: I was looking over the bike today (5000miles) and found the front axle pinchbolt almost all the way backed out. I turned it a few times with my fingers and took it completely out. You might want to check yours.

Just checked mine (it's a 6mm hex bolt) and it's nice and tight.
