I have a very serious problem with my old, busted, race face deus cranks. I can't get them off of my bike.
Then 10mil bolt is stripped, totally round. This happened the last time I put them on. Now I want to get them off, and I can't. Any ideas? They're affixed to a cheap frame, but I still don't want to write off the whole bike because I can't get the cranks off.
Is my only solution a hacksaw through the spindle? I don't even know if I can get enough room in there to get a hacksaw blade in.
As far as I'm concerned, these cranks are garbage. I got them when they first came out and have had no end of problems with them. I do need to get these off my bike, though, as the chainrings are shot, and I have no interest in dropping 80$ into a new set of rings when the splines on the spindle are wearing out.
Can you ge the cranks off only using the 8 mil wrench? A buddy of mine insists that it's possible, but I can't get the stinker to budge. HELP!
