Triple crankset disassembly?
I am trying to work with a junky old hybrid that has a MTB-style triple crankset. I know how to take apart a standard road setup, where the chainrings bolt into the spider, but this is something different. The chainrings all appear to be riveted together, i.e., there is no place to insert an allen key. Is there any way to get this taken apart?
The idea is to make this into a single chainring setup. The front derailleur on this bike is broken, and it isn't worth putting money into the bike. Is this even going to be a possibility with this crankset?
I tried searching, but to no avail. Thanks in advance for any help.
