    GX crank arm removal?

    I'm trying to remove my GX cranks. The pinch bolt is on the drive side. If I remove that pinch bolt i won't be able to slide the spindle out of the bike because the sprocket attachment bolts are on the inside of the bike covered by the bottom bracket. How do I remove the cranks?

    It should be a self extracting 8mm bolt on the drive side crank. Just unscrew it. The chainring is attached to the DS crank and comes off with it.

    (FYI that crank doesn't have pinch bolts)
    Rigid SS 29er
    SS 29+
    Fat Lefty
    SS cyclocross
    Full Sus 29er (Yuck)

    Stop asking how much it weighs and just go ride it.
