    What do indeed to get this crank off?

    I have a 2008 trek fuel ex8...with LX cranks. I don't see any markings to tell me what crank type it is therefore I'm a bit confused as to how to remove it. I do believe it has the external bearing BB. Below is a picture of what I need to remove (I assume) - the black "star" bolt on the non drive side. I've looked on park tools site but am not seeing anything.

    Once you loosen the pinch bolts you can normally get the black 'adjuster' out with a pair of needle nose or snap ring pliers in a pinch. Their only supposed to be finger tight.
