    Bottom Bracket tool????

    Hello everybody! I have a 2005 Norco Havoc and have a cracking noise coming from it. I have tightened the cranks to 300 lbs tourque but still never helped the cracking noise. I was thinking that maybe my bottom bracket needs to be tightened. But I have a problem. What tool should I use? It would be nice to check on e-bay to see if there is any there that could help me! Thanks alot!!!!

    Unless your BB is odd or an external bearing type, you'll likely need this:

    you should check to make sure the chain ring bolts (the 4 bolts that attach the crank arm to the rings) are not loose, as well as that, your pedals could be loose too.

    whoa, i dont think i can tighten my cranks to 300lbs... on my last bike i used a torx wrench and ratchet and i stripped the bolt or whatever (inside of the bolt, where the allen wrench should fit) but i dont have that problem because that bike got stolen..
    as for your issue, i'd second tightening your pedals or chainring...
    good luck
    Trance music is okay...
    Drum & Bass is way better

    Just incase it helps anyone, the noise only comes form the non-drive side (side with no chain, lol). Also it only happens when I put a nice bit of pressure on the pedel. (eg, when I pedel up hill) I just tightened the crank arm and pedel, but still no luck. It didn't help a single bit. Please help! I can't stand that noise!

    Are you sure the noise is coming from the BB and not the chain? Have you lubricated the chain recently?
