Dont make the same mistake with Ultegra Cranks/BB(1 post)

Dont make the same mistake with Ultegra Cranks/BBStevieP
Dec 4, 2002 8:53 AM
I bought a crank extractor tool to remove my 4 year old Ultegra cranks from the matching BB.

Having not ever removed these cranks, I figured I would need a crank extractor. Wrong!

I unwound the crank bolts and the cranks just came off. I then realised that I had a splined BB. Coming from a MTB background, I didn't realise that splined BB's were being made for the road as far back as 1998 so I was quite shocked.

How ingenious. Crank extractor tool anyone:-)?!
