Powerbypies,

It is, but i have ordered a bike maintenance book to avoid annoying the knowledgeable people here with silly questions.

It is great to know that if i am stuck, i can rely on you guys for great advice.

Thanks to all - yet again!!!

As someone on here said the only stupid question is the unasked question.

Just be careful each time you install the crank puller, you don't want to damage the threads on each crank arm!

I am scared now, perhaps it is best that the LBS do it. Also, i want them to look at the BB - there is about 0.25 mm in it so it may be less costly - i hope!
