    One Key Release Question

    I have a Cannondale Synapse. When I back out the 10mm crank bolts up against the collar, the collar starts to unscrew and not allow me to remove the crank arms. Should I hold it in place with a spanner wrench and turn the crank bolt or should I get an extraction tool. If the answer is to get an extraction tool, which one (Park Tool) do I need? I'm exchanging the carbon compact drive for standard Hollowgram cranks.

    Thanks,
    Mike

    Just hold the collar in place with a pin spanner if you have one or a small punch. A drop of oil into the interior of the collar that lubes the bolt head should help.

    That will be my plan, Thanks.
