    What tool do I need to remove the crank arms?

    I have a 2003 Specialized Enduro Comp and it has the stock cranks. I need to remove them because the BB bearings are a bit loose (never been touched since new) and I can't tighten the BB until the cranks are off. So what tool do I need to remove the cranks?

    I can't tell what it looks like inside. Is the crankarm threaded? If so you need a crankpuller.

    You need a crank puller for octalink/ISIS.

    The BB probably uses sealed cartridge bearings. So you can't just tighten it up if it has developed play.

    Well the BB screws into the BB tube on the frame and it is that threaded area that is loose. But I will obviously check all parts for wear before re-installing them.

    You'll still need a crank puller and then you'll need a bb cup tool like this http://parktool.com/products/detail....25&item=BBT-22
