Its a pain when you need special tools just to remove something. Nothing is ever straight forward :roll:

Wouldn't it be better & cheeper to buy? I have the tools. But I'm in London. So postage would be a lot. Plus if you brought them then you would always have (for next time)

Thought the tools were quite expensive, and I just want to remove the cranks to sell them.....guess a trip to my LBS is the best bet.

Sell them with the cranks. As I've noticed the shops keep the tools when they sell the cranks :twisted: hence why i had to buy. :evil:

Thats a good point :idea: why didn't I think of that. :lol:

Just ordered the TL-FC35 off CRC...as far as I can see that's the only 'special' tool needed for removal....I have an X-Type bearing spanner already.

They only come with the cranks when you buy them OTC. Bike manufacturers seldom supply them together with the bikes (though there are notable exceptions).

Christ what a rip off......£25+ for a tool that is not far evolved from a self-extracting crank bolt. :roll:
What a waste of money....but I have one now if anyone wants to borrow it...just pay the postage, wouldn't amount to much.
