    Looking to replace Crank

    First off, hello to everyone. I used to be a member of the forum but lost the MTB bug for a few years.

    I'm looking at returning to mountain biking, but my bike has suffered slightly after years of neglect while only being used for the daily commute.

    My main issue at the minute is the crank keeps coming loose and making horrible noises.
    Now I'll hold my hands up and say, I've never really played around with the crank before, but I took it apart and cleaned it all up. However it hasn't made much of a difference. It's now leading me to think I just need to replace it, after all, it is 8 year old.

    It's a Shimano M552 42x32x24T 175mm. I'm just wondering if anyone has any suggestions on replacements? Cheers

    It's not a bad quality crank. What part is coming loose?

    Ok, I've found the problem after having a look at it today. The crank bolt is missing completely Not sure how I missed that. Doh!

    That's a cheap fix.

    I use blue Loctite on those bolts to make sure they don't come lose.
