    removing Truvativ Stylo crank

    want to replace chainrings. trying to remove stylo crank. got the 8mm nut off, removed non-drive side crank. the drive side crank and spindle SHOULD just side out but it wont budge. the cranks turn without problem, but i am not able to pull the drive side crank out. tried "tapping" with a hammer and piece of wood, got it to move slightly, but feels like there's something preventing it from moving any further. any ideas?

    thanks!

    Tap is harder......sometimes they are a little sticky......but just hit it harder, they should break loose.

    I've had to legitimately "beat" cranks out before. If maintenance isn't your middle name, or you ride in wet conditions, chances are the bearing and spindle have frozed together. In any case, hit harder. It'd be wise to pull out your BB, clean the threads, and grease the system before reinstalling.
