Sounds like its a bit seized. Blast it with some WD or some GT85 and leave it overnight. Just make sure when you put it back in you grease it up.

Might want/need to tap the bolt once you've loosened it off a bit. Unwind it a few turns though, so the bolt's sticking up and you don't smack the paint on the stem...

the angle on the wedge on mission controls is much steeper than many quill stems, so it can sometimes stick mroe easily - once you've knocked the bolt (and bottom wedge) back down it should be fine.

Re: cranks
