Got my new bottom bracket with the superlight cranks (FSA) and the BB did not come with the steel bolt they recommend to crank it down and then remove to put in the alloy bolts. None available at any of my LBS. Anybody have any ideas other then waiting for the one to arrive from FSA. Bummer....
do you have other cranks? just take one bolt out...weiwentg

if you have any other bikes that have splined cranks/BBs at all, just pull one bolt out and use that one. if you have self-extracting bolts, remove the collar with a pin spanner, then take the bolt out (it won't self extract) and use it to install your new cranks.
by the way, are those cranks really as light as they claim?

No, this is a different size for the Pro Ti. It is an M-14 rather than the standard M-15. A bit smaller.....

The cranks weight about 517 grams without the 20 gram alloy bolts. They look sweet.
ah, that's not goodweiwentg

I'm sure they'll set you up, though, if you ask them. I think the alloy bolts MAY survive insertion, but they've definitely been known to self-destruct when used as self-extractors.
