Angry Damn sub 170mm cranks

I hate having to take the pedals off so the crank puller will spin!

I have to do that with all of my cranks. Don't forget to take the nut off first.

I was wondering how well the other crank puller worked:

I would assume that with this one, you wouldn't need to take the pedals off first. Right?

That's the one that I use. You don't need to take the pedal off to be able to remove the crank. But you do have to remember to bring an adjustable wrench (or spanner) along or the crank remover doesn't work very well.

The type of crank remover that Sofa is using is a real pain to use with shorter cranks.

Well, I've had it for about 5 years, and have taken off about 200 cranks with it...still good as new.

I'll keep it, thanks

Although, I will get that other one for my unicycles with short cranks
