It was this ad that sold me on it. I'm sure I'll be able to ride just as well when I get mine.

The current Park tools just have the 22mm thread, which is Campy, Shimano, and nearly every other commonly encountered crankset with threaded arms.

The old Park tool had 22mm on one side, and 23mm on the other for TA cranks. ;-)

The trails are not all like that. Below is another trail in the same park, and like the others, it's much worse in person than it appears on the video. The one time I rode these Red trails, I took such a hammering that I'll probably never go on them again, even with a FS bike.

That's how I remember it, but couldn't comment on the current item.

Note to Gummee and anyone else who runs into this: Stronglight cranks are yet a different size and if you try to use the TA puller YOU WILL DESTROY THE THREADS. Stronglight are 23.35mm, just to piss us off.
