You need some type of crank remover (http://www.parktool.com/repair/readhowto.asp?id=120), probably the CCP-4 or CPW-6.

A grinder, huh?

I guess the old cranks were bent too far to worry about anymore?

Seriously, the right tool will help when you need to change them out again, without ruining the ones on there.

since ground off cranks are obviously unusable for any more usefull purpus you should try to incorporate them in a home-made ultamate wheel

im glad you didnt use the "biger hammer" method

Oh god, don't do what he did and grind them. Try a tool with a longer handle for more leverage?

I always like keeping old parts of sports or things that I played like snowboards, bikes unicycles... that way if i ever become pro at something I can throw everything else away and say how I had been doing this sport my whole life.
