What if you don’t have a torque wrench?
Love this video ! Enjoyed watching it !
Very good explanation of the procedure. Thanks Phil for taking time out and posting this video !!
helpful for the novice!
Interesting instructions. Thanks
Thanks for a clear video. My Shimano set had a spring washer in the crank. The tool I bought was rubbish as it stripped its thread on the bit that winds in. I have ordered (I hope) a better quality puller. A bit of copperslip doesnt hurt on threads.
I dont have a crank bolt like yours… But it does have some corners tho for a big wrench
This is a good video and as other have learned how to do this i have too, But it should be mentioned that when you go to remove it that will be hard to do, that you will probably need a persuader ( a pipe you can slide the handle of the wrench into to give you better torque and better leverage to remove it, Anything to help you loosen it up and if you have penetrating oil spray some on before trying this wait about 20 mins and then it might come off as easy as your did.This is what i had to do.
Good work, thanks for the instructions 😎
This is interesting to watch and good to know in case I damage mine.
Excellent video, and great audio thank you
What if you ain’t got that little tool??
Great video! Thanks! I have a 1994 Diamond Back with broken teeth on chain gear. Can I just replace the gear? Do they still make it? Or do i need to replace the whole crank assembly? Thanks again!!!
Ulol pakyu bulok bike mo
Ups…. I think that old crank is better than the new one….
Just need a little cleaning maintenance and bearings treatment….
I had the worst nightmare ever trying to do This!!!
I used the crank remover tool but somehow I managed to strip the threads inside the crank!!!! Tried hammering the crank off and using a crank puller, would not come off!!!
Had to take it to a bike shop they eventually got it off by a lot of hammering and cursing lol
The best, most simple and most explanatory video on YT showing how to do this. Cheers.
Good video. Dismantling my bicycle to get rid of rust. Will paint to make it new. Do you have more video to remove gear’s etc?
Mine looks completely different. A maybe ~1" hole goes through from one side to the other, with some "jagged pattern" around the edge of the hole on the left side, seemingly to fit some special tool…
Good concise video and shows all the parts involved vey well.
Good job producing your video. Well laid out and simple to follow. You also have great audio which is very helpful.
I’m thinking of replacing the crank on my 29er. The part that the crank arm is connected to is stripped. What size cranks gear would I need to purchase?
That was so informative! clear video and the audio was clear as well!!
Thanks for the video,laying out my tools now.
Thank you for your simplistic step by step video. 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼
What size is the Allen wrench please?
Am I out of luck if my bike is around 20 years old? Does the bicycle industry just move on every five or so years to new styles of parts, meaning that the replacement crankset I’m needing just isn’t around anymore? If it helps, it’s a mongoose placid hybrid with schimano parts. Thanks 😊
Perfect demonstration! Many thanks!
+Phil Crockett how tight would you say to tighten crankset if i don’t have a torque wrench
As I’m thinking of replacing my budget level 3×10 group set, I’ve watched a few of these videos.
This one is great! Simple and to the point without expensive bike or parts to distract from the content.
Good work here 👍
What crank set did you get?? Model??
do you not repack the main bearing with grease, or am i too old? if i were to replace the crankset, i’d probably replace the bearing. if the chain was old, i’d do the rears too and new chain. but then again, there are budgets.
