It’s Tuesday, so it’s time for Brant Moore to drop a new tech tip. This time around he shows you how to use a crank arm puller on BMX cranks!
If you have rode BMX for a while, there’s a very good chance you have had to take your cranks off at some point, or install a pair of cranks on a new frame. While, installing a pair of cranks isn’t exactly rocket appliances (Trailer Park Boys, anyone?), it can be a little tricky and using the right tools for the job make life a lot easier. If you have ever had a pair of 3-piece cranks, there’s a good chance you have either used, or have seen a Crank Arm Puller. Now, the tool isn’t completely necessary, but it exists because it does make things a hell of a lot easier when it comes to installing or removing BMX cranks. One reason many people don’t use them is because they don’t know how it works. Brant Moore put together this detailed video showing you just how to use a crank arm puller to remove or install a set of BMX cranks. Hit play, take it all in and then remember to use the right tools for the job!
“A crank puller is a tool that can make putting on and taking off bmx/bicycle 3 piece cranks a quick and easy task. Especially compared to the alternative of using other tools, aka the wrong tools for the job.
In this video I demonstrate how to use a crank puller to install and remove bmx 3 piece cranks.” – Brant Moore
