    You sure? I've taken out a lot of BBs using pointy nose pliers.

    $12.85! Shouldn't you have at lease tried to negotiate the price with her?
    My greatest fear is all of my kids standing around my coffin and talking about "how sensible" dad was.

    I agree with RG that you are at risk of being arrested for stealing that bike for $12.85.

    I've used allen wrenches in place of a pin spanner. Not too hard to improvise something. Since they're so cheap and easy, there's a good chance you'll replace the bottom bracket with a cartridge unit like a Shimano UN26 or UN55. If you do, you wouldn't need a pin spanner to put the bike back together. (You would need a bottom bracket tool, though.)
