  • To remove cranks using a self extractor cap, simply turn the 8mm hex screw counter clockwise. This will loosen the bolt, then remove the arm

  • TRS race cranks do not use a self extractor like some of our other cranks, so an Isis or Octalink crank removal tool like the Park Tool CCP-44 must be used to remove the cranks.

  • We also include a small removal tool with the cranks for trailside needs
