removing my Prophet cranks & BB
my Prophet is creaking so i want to clean and grease up the BB.
I have the "Truvativ Fire something or other" crankset that came stock on the bike.
I want to make sure that I buy the proper tools so...can someone recommend inexpensive choices? I would most likely buy from Nashbar or performance because they carry decent tools for less $$$.
I believe I need a crank puller and a BB removal tool for ISIS style BB.
(will the BB tool that is used for the Lefty Top cap fit the ISIS BB)?
If so, all I need is a crank puller.

Not familiar with the Firex, does it have outboard bearings? If its true ISIS, then all you need is the ISIS tool and the crank puller.
I have the nashbar crank puller (although mine is the old version of this, not as fancy):
And the Park version of this, for regular ISIS:
But now that I think about it, I also have this, and it was used with the stock truvativ gigapipe BB:
(I have used several truvativ and race face BB's, and now am happy with XT Hollotech :-) )
Don't forget some grease:
those are the exact tools I put in my cart at nashbar.
