I used a vice grip, but that was all i had around...you need to take the crank out all the way to get it all off... so once you have removed the crank from the frame, if you have a big vice grip use that to remove it, i believe it has normal threading on the sprocket side (been a long time since i have had a one piece) but opposite on the non sprocket side...


if your profile pic is your setup, you have a 3piece crank, so you just need to take of the arm on the sprocket side, and then pull the sprocket bolt out, and the sprocket comes right off.

I am sick and tired of the "cliques" that this sport has recently developed. We should embrace the fact that we all ride a little kids bike, and not worry about the small details. When you take riding in its most basic form, we are all the same.

It is old. And YOU brought it back up. Not everyone can afford 3 piece cranks, so I offered up a decent solution.
