    Tech Help: SRAM XO BB30 Crankset Removal

    Hey all!

    So, I'm struggling to remove this XO Crankset. I've done GXP a ton of times, and really didn't expect this to be any more difficult. Maybe it's not the BB30 that is different, I'm simply trying to remove the crank.

    I've searched the interwebz, and really have only found videos, or help with GXP, and seems there are different directions.

    Anyway, from everything I've gathered, I have to loosen the drive side. I need to confirm that it's a Lefty Loosey situation here, and that I'm just weak?

    SOB!

    Yeah, just loosen the bolt on the drive side. Place your allen wrench about 15-30 degrees from the crankarm and then squeeze them together. That usually gets you max torque.

    I had a lot of trouble removing a Red BB30 crank recently (the interface is pretty much the same). I ended up buying an electric impact wrench with a 10mm Allen key, that did the job. Nothing else would. Just make sure you have A LOT of engagement between the hex key and that aluminum bolt.
