    New question here. 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.

    thanks.

    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:
