    Need Help w/Iron Horse

    Hello Guys & Gals,

    It seems that my Race Face crank on my old Iron Horse Azure XC (Expert) has given up the ghost. I need to find a replacement crank. The crankset is 3x9 (I think). I am not nearly familiar with MTB BB standards as I am with road bikes. What BB was the typical installation back around 2005? Am I going to need a special tool/technique to pull the RF crank that's busted? Can anybody recommend a replacement that approximates the original RF crank? (don't want to go 2x10 as that necessitates replacing other components for compatibility).

    Thanks for the help!!!
    G

    It should take any 68mm English thread bottom bracket and crankset. Any of the current Deore cranksets should be fine as a replacement. As with any component, there may be specific tools needed to remove and install. Start by figuring out what you currently have (make AND model), then do some googling to see what you need to remove it. Then figure out what you want to replace it with and do the same. Most mfg's have install instructions readily available online in pdf, so it doesn't hurt to do a little browsing to see what your level of commitment is for the replacement crankset (for tools, bottom brackets, etc) before you buy the replacement.
