Removing St martin Crank
« on: August 06, 2007, 08:51:57 PM »
So i will get my new frame this week...   :P

But my problem is this:

How do remove my St martin crank? They are so stuck on the axle that i dont know how to get them off without damaging the stuff...

Do i need to go to a bicycle shop? would they have some sort of tool to get them off?

Siard.

Get an 8mm allan wrench and loosen.  They pull themselves off...
The following is the truth.  The preceeding is a lie.

you need a crank extractor if you've not got the ecoflat pro's.

If they're stuck you're better off taking them to a shop.

yeah you need the crank extractor for that. but go to a bikeshop and let them pull the cranks out for you, it would be waste of money on that tool if you use just few times.
