    That tool doesn't go far enough into it so I can't pull it out

    Pista, as in Bianchi pista?

    You got the wrong crank puller for that bb. It is possible to use it anyways tho, just get a small bolt that will fit into the bb spindle. then thread your puller on, and wall-ah.

    You can't take them off. They're part of the frame, just like the seatpost clamp.

    Why don't you post in the mechanics forum? This IS NOT a ssfg issue.

    Bolt doesn't even have to thread into the axle, just something that will cover up the hole. Trust me, I'm actually a mechanic. I wouldn't recommend using any tool that isn't designed for the job, but you can use the gorilla bike mechanics approach.

    Got it off, I just removed the front most part of the tool and it worked. Came off easily, thanks for the help.

    Haha, I just relized the guys I named don't hang out in BFSSFG. So just put some thing between the square taper and puller, and that should work? Whats the chances of this backfiring on me?

    I don't have a square taper puller. And Im inbetween jobs, and I want to clean up my bottombracket/crank.

    This will work, I had a square taper that had a crappy plastic cup and it broke off. I got a bolt and some washers, put it through the socket hole in the BB tool, grabbed the wrench and a rubber mallet, gave it a couple of good whacks, and it loosened up enough for me to get the BB out.
