Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Crank bolts?

Just got a rpm 165 square taper crank. It didn't come with crank bolts. Can I just use any old crank bolt or are there different sizes, threads, etc? I was thinking of getting allen crank bolts (like these http://cgi.ebay.com/Allen-Crank-Bolt...QQcmdZViewItem) so I wouldn't have to buy another tool.

hmm, I think any old ones should work. for those you should go to a shop, they may have some they'd give you for free. who knows. but I wouldn't pay $8.00 for them by no means.

Thanks. Yeah, I was going to ask around to some bike friends to see if someone had extras before buying something but if I do have to buy something I would like the allen ones. $8 is cheaper then the $30 or whatever for a crank bolt puller.

yeah, the self pulling crank bolts are nice, but whatever. I mean how often do you need to pull your cranks, ya know?

those bolts you linked to aren't self extracting.
you'll still need a crank puller.
