Odyssey caliburs stuck

I’ve been trying to get these pieces of shit out for the past hour and a half and I’ve tried everything from hitting them with a mallet and using the bolt as a crank puller to tapping the sprocket with my mallet to get the arm loose. No bike shops are open since it’s 1am so what should I do. I don’t wanna go to my local bike shop in the morning since they charge $30 for crank installation removal and $10 for BB installation/removal, making it an $80 project

I'd recommend getting a proper crank arm puller (Odyssey sells one for $15). Kind of a bummer that they wouldn't included one...

They have one at my local bike shop but they don’t let anyone touch their tools because someone accidentally fucked up a chain breaker a while ago

Use a lighter for some seconds and then hit it again ...

Bummer. Once you do get them off I’d recommend going with a set of 8 splines for easy install/removal.

Don’t put 25.4 bars in a 22.2 stem.

1. Did you lather the splines in grease before installing the Cranks?

2. 48-Spline cranks are not the best Cranks to install and try to take right back off. If they're fairly new Cranks, you may need too ride them for a handful of months to break in the splines.

3. Any crank will come off with a properly fitted crank puller and some whacks from a metal mallet.

4. Buy your own tools, then you won't have to worry about paying other people to use theirs.

If anything, it's a good thing that they fit that tight. Means they're less likely to develop wobble.

Make some pasta. Strain the hot pasta water directly onto the crank spindle/arms. Remove by tapping gently with a non dead blow hammer.

Enjoy pasta as a celebratory crank arm removal meal.

Heat the crank while lowering the temperature of the spindle.
That should work like a charm.

How to achieve this though...that I do not know laughing
