Preferred crank removal tool ?

Postby MichaelB » Mon Nov 26, 2018 4:13 pm

What’s the option that most people find best ?

CCP-22 + dowel or use the CCP-44 ?

Seen either option on yooootoob, but also want to hear from those that do it themselves

TIA

Probably better off in the Bike Shed section..

but for what it's worth I have a BBB that does both (you never know what you'll pick up)
Mmm, SunTour

I've got both but prefer the Lifu/IceToolz one like this https://www.bike-discount.de/en/buy/lif ... ller-25941
Why? Those particular Park Tool models rotate to a particular point & in some circumstances become difficult to rotate further. With the Lifu/IceToolz you just reposition a spanner at a different angle/rotation. Park Tool do a similar crank remover. But there are another couple of advantages of the Lifu/IceToolz. 1 - 14/15 mm reversable nut/bolt socket, 2 - choice of centres to suit a variety of cranks.
I've on occasion tried the Park Tool crank removers again, but always return to the Lifu/IceToolz.

Almost bought a tool yesterday, but then had some minor recollection that I had one from my Octalink days.

Found it !! Used it and managed to separate the Ds crank arm from the spindle, so thanks for the help guys
