Up until today I would have said crank puller - no contest… But today, for a few dollars and a quick chat at Abbotsford, I found a new favourite: the Shimano TL-FC20 or chainring bolt tool Amazing how a little piece of metal can bring so much joy heh.
The shiny spanner Nick gave me from that bearing shop.
Is it bad to pull cranks without a puller? All I use is a big allen key to get them off, ditto for on, only I always have to do it twice because the first time I put them back on kangaroo-bike style (amusing, but impractical).
fave tool is one that i dont own… cable cutters. have never been able to justify the cash. nowadays its no sweat but i pined for one aaaaages. my most hated tool is my old crank puller… it chewed some otherwise v nice cranks. i wants a campy one.
