    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.

    yes find a way to rotate them via fingers, pliers with protected jaws and then see if a thin bladed item can be inserted between the spacers.
    Mine was the same way but managed to spin/remove.

    I was hesitant to do that, but it worked like a charm.
