im having a minor problem. i need to get my RF crank off but not sure exactly which tool i need. i'm not sure of the exact name given to this type of spline system. its a raceface xc crank set. not hollowtech 2.

the crank is held on with a bolt that i think is 15mm into the end of the tube that goes through the bb, but the thread on the crank itself is much bigger at around 30mm.

best way i can describe the splines is to call them keys, and the through tube is fixed to the pedal arm side. hoping someone has removed one of these before and can shed some light on the tool needed.

cheers.

That sounds like hollow tech.

Any pictures?

Sounds like your missing the extraction cap.

extraction cap?

yes you could say its missing as i have no knowledge of such a thing :lol:

is it a cap that is static and the internal bolt pushes against it on the way out? that would make perfect sense.

Yeah you got it.
Although unsure if yours is this, it does sound like it though.
You can get them from crc.
