What Is The Best Way To Remove A Bicycle Crank?

The best way to remove a bicycle crank is to first remove the chain. To do this, you will need a chain tool. Once the chain is removed, you can then use a crank extractor to remove the crank.
Here is a step-by-step guide:
1. Use a chain tool to remove the chain from the bicycle.
2. Once the chain is removed, use a crank extractor to remove the crank from the bicycle.

How Do You Remove A Seized Bicycle Crank?
Use a crank extractor.
Assuming the bicycle crank is seized onto the spindle (the part of the crank the pedals are attached to), there are a few ways to remove it.
If the crank is made of steel, the first step is to heat up the crank using a torch. This will help to expand the metal and break the seizure. Once the crank is heated up, try to remove it with a wrench or pair of pliers.
If the crank is made of aluminum, you’ll need to be careful not to overheat it and damage the metal. Use a lower setting on the torch and heat up the crank until it’s just barely warm to the touch. Again, try to remove it with a wrench or pair of pliers.
If the above methods don’t work, you may need to use a crank puller. This is a tool that attaches to the crank and essentially pulls it off the spindle. You can find crank pullers at most bike shops, or online.
Here’s a real-life example:
I was working on my friend’s bike the other day and ran into a bit of a problem. The crank was seized onto the spindle and I couldn’t get it to budge, no matter how much I wrenched on it. I tried heating up the crank with a torch, but that didn’t work. Luckily, I had a crank puller with me and was able to get the crank off without too much trouble.
