Thread that crank bolt back in half way and then hit it with a rubber mallet. This will push your spindle and help remove the crank.

Well that didn't work. Do you mean thread it in halfway and then hit the bolt with a mallet? And now I have no idea how to disassemble my demolition rouge because ok trying to clean it. How do I take it apart?

I dont know why people choose to do this, you can easily damage the threads on the bolt and axle. OP, if you arent sure of what to do, leave it alone before you create any problems.

Don't fuck with it too much.

First, take some 3 in one oil and put it on the stuff so it fixes the rustiness a little to help it loosen. WD40 isn't gonna work (well) so don't do that.

Then you're gonna need a new crank puller. Should be one on danscomp or something for 22mm spindles. Or try and take a brass rod and stick it in there and pound it pretty hard until it comes off.

Then buy Thunderbolts instead of stupid splined cranks because splines are inferior. I have Thunderbolts and they're easily the best cranks ever. I hated my spline cranks

nah for real do, i dont wanna be a dick to this guy he seems chill,

the tibias come with an uninstall tool, basically do what chris suggested just in a safer and less rough manner, but you still get to bash things with a ammer which is fun, if you don't have that then i honestly dont know but i imagine you could pick one up from dans for like $10.. otherwise unless you really need them off just leave them on.. no need to dick around thats how i usually break shit.
