Just to add to Jerry's post, many Stronglight cranks have had their threads pulled out in the past. Even if this has happened using the correct extractor can still remove the crank later on in many cases. I used to have quite a few pair of "stripped" cranks that were given to me. The key to removing a "stripped" crank is to thread the extractor all the way to the bottom of the crankarm threads. ciao, Brandon"monkeyman"Ives SB, CA
