Are you sure a Park peanut butter wrench will remove a Zeus crank bolt? Remember, the bolt is 16mm, but the extractor thread is 22mm instead of 23.35, so it's a tigher space than on a Stronglight crank. I have a couple of the Park wrenches, but I've neveer tried them on Zeus. I use a Zeus crank bolt wrench or the 16mm socket that came with the old Stronglight consumer model crank extractor. The Park might work, I've just never tried it. What I miss is the old Park wrench that had 14, 15 and 16 sockets all on one wrench.

I think that Park stopped production of the 16mm "peanut butter" style wrench several years ago. Nevertheless (!) I was able to buy one at the Spokes bicycle shop in Alexandria, Virginia a few weeks ago. The guy behind the counter said something to me like "stocking up on French cycling gear, eh?" He was greatly amused when I answered "As a matter of fact, yes."
Most importantly, I believe they still have one more for sale. I will gladly purchase and mail the wrench off to anyone who is interested in it. You would only need to reimburse me for the cost of the wrench plus the postal fee (which can't be too much).
Of course, if someone from the D.C. area buys it in the next few days, please let us know so that we don't get anyone's hopes up. (And so I don't needlessly visit the store.) Cheers, Fred Rednor - Arlington, Virginia
