removing cranks that have their threads wrecked?

Yesterday I got new 5 inch cranks, an upgrade to my sixes but one of my sixes’ threads are all screwed up so I can’t get the crank puller on. Does anyone know how to get the crank off?

(p.s. I bent my frame using a crowbar, not severely though)

you need to use a gearpuller, which has two or three legs which grab behind the crank and presses with a bolt on the end of the hub. I think UDC sells them for profile cranks, or your LBS will no doubt have one for shifting cranks.

thanks, I’m new to the forums so UDC means…? Thanks
