hello, i'm working on a Schwinn Sprint, and don't know how to get the crank off. The bottom bracket needs to be lubed. The bike is made of Suntour components. It looks like there are two bolts- one holding on each crank arm. Those came off easy, but the crank arms still won't come off. Is there something i'm supposed to do here?? Tia

Ask your bike shop to pull them, it may save you the price of a puller. It'll only take them a second or two, and if you're a good customer they just might do it for nothing.
