    What bolt is this

    Stupid question but I've looked everywhere and could not find an answer. Obv. I'm a newbie so your help is appreciated.

    I have a gt idrive 5 and cannot identify the crank bolt. Do I need a special tool to take it out? Can I use an allen wrench? What size is it?

    The bike is overseas and I need to get the tools needed before I go over there; I will be trying to fix the annoying creaking these bikes are apparently known for. I will be following this guide: I-Drive Pivot maintenance/repair

    Thanks allName:  Crank Bolt.JPG

    Undo the two allen head bolts on the crank arm before trying to undo the plastic "nut"

    The "nut" is used to tension the crankarm before doing up the "allen key bolts" on the crank arm.
