    RF Atlas drive side crank stuck on spline! Help!

    I'm attempting to disassemble my Race Face Atlas crankset. Removed the torque bolt but the drive side crank will not come of the non drive spline. Tried whacking the crank off with a block of wood but it's not budging (yeah, I'm a hacker). I don't want to hit it too hard and inflict damage! The crankset came with the bike and I think the bearings are done. Major creaking with each pedal stroke. Any suggestions?

    Put the crank bolt back on with an 8mm allen, put the reverse-threaded extractor cap back on with a 10mm allen, then try to remove the crank bolt. It's a self-extracting setup. Crank bolt pushes against extractor cap and pushes crank arm off splines.

    OK, I get it now. I'm missing the 10 mm extarctor cap. So I'm off to the bike shop to order one. Thanks.
