Hi all,

Daniel is correct. The TA tool side of the Park reversible tool will pull threads out of the old Stronglight. An old shop should have the tool so you have a cheapie source certainly if you pay them. I'd advise putting in a Phil (designed to fit) and keep the crank if the ring range is good for you as a well maintained Stronglight crank is as long lasting (and light) as your might find anywhere from my experience. They can polish up like a mirror too.

Looking around I have Stronglight (new and vintage) along with a few TA (Cyclotourist) cranks on everything I ride (6 bikes not including a few roadsters). The new cranks (Stronglight and TA) are hard to find but very nice as well.

I need a life man,
