    Race Face Atlas install help.

    I received my new in the box 2013 Atlas crankset and everything appears to be good, and all spacers are included.
    My trouble is this; all the 1mm spacers are installed on the spindle/axle tight to the non-drive side arm.
    Iíve given them a good going over with my fingers but for the life of me cannot budge them free. I need to remove them and am considering using a knife to separate them one at a time, or, using a set of pliers to spin them on the spindle in hopes of breaking them loose.

    Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Had to use a knife edge to help remove the spacers on all my RF cranks. Work your way around the spindle a spacer or two at a time until you have enough space to grab them with your hands and slide them off. I would not recommend pliers as the rubber coated "seal" spacers are easily bent/ mangled.
