Turned just under 2 hours of riding into that.

This was my first practice run doing it.



Appreciate the details. I'll give it a shot on the next ride.

I pulled cranks a hundred times before running into one that wouldn't budge. The odds are with you. Good luck.

Just got back from my first road ride in over a year. Forgot how much I missed it.

Thought about riding the loop twice but figured I'd leave myself something to look forward to tomorrow.

Took the boy up to my parents on my off-days this week, and while they were being Grandma&Grandpa, I took the Vaya out to recon some forest roads and trails in the area. 49.2 miles@15.3mph avg. It was relatively flat, though the last 10 miles or so, I was fantasizing about calling them to come and pick me up along the road somewhere...

I'm guessing that 10-12 miles or so were unpaved.



Here, the road morphed into an ATV trail. I only went a couple hundred yards down it before I decided it was too sandy, and I was about 20 miles from home at this point, so I turned around.


A gust of wind blew the bike of the rock I perched it on...


I finished the day with four miles of this.

Guess for me, it all started with a bicycle. Never realized that my body was capable of wondrous things till I pushed down on a pedal.

Perhaps I am patting myself on the back, but at least it is 'thread appropriate'.

Circa 1973, morning of my solo cross-country departure; Chico Ca. to Boston, Mass.



A couple of years after, here I am heading to La Paz. Some long lonely days on the road, as days can be for a solo adventurer.



One of my current mounts. Not nearly as physical, but still lots of fun. Gerry

I do usually lightly grease them before reassembly. if the inside threads on the crankarm are dirty, I'll clean them up a bit with a toothbrush and a bit of solvent (typically wd40, because its what I have on hand). as several folks said, important that the threaded part of the puller is on as far as you can get it before you start twisting. oh and I grease the screw shaft on the puller so it turns easier.

I have the park CWP7, which you use with a wrench, mostly because its more compact and I'm not using it all the time. Also it fits the Octolink splined cranks, which I put on my son's vintage roadie.
...and I've pulled more'n a few that I *thought* were screwed in tight only to have the tool pull out with threads attached, but no crankarm.

If anyone needs one, I have a French thread crank puller I'll loan ya for a 6-er of your favorite local adult beverage.

Would that be TA or Stronglight?

Back on the bike for the first time in a long time. A trail just a short bit from my house:



Feels good. I may do more.

Did the Singlespeedapalooza again

Great year for it. Trails were nice and dry and the course was great - 28 miles of singletrack. I was shot on the second lap but saw the photographer so I gave it a little loft for him.



Got my 7 yr old on the trails this year too. I was apprehensive until about ten minutes in he says :This is cool, Daddy". It was all good after that.

22 miles today, from downtown Bawlmer to the BWI trail. That trail is *amazing*.

A little over 100 miles between yesterday and today, with a shitload of hills... I rode in the woods last Sunday for the first time in a few weeks. The road miles really make it so much more fun, as I can ride whole sections without blowing up!

Sweet! Would love to see more pictures from those trips, if you have them.

I'd have to go look. The puller came with a bike with French thread HS and BB. Gave the bike away. Kept the tool.
