I have a Hardrock, early 90s, that was converted (very nicely) to SS. It has a Sram Dual Drive Cyclone crank.

Now, what BB tool do I need, and what crank removal tool (if any) do I need. It has only two hex head bolts instead of the nut that I'm use to.

I just want to know because I'm putting in an order tonight and want to add the tools to my order so they get here soon.

obviously a crank arm puller and i don't know the exact name of the tool you need that hooks into the two holes you mentioned to loosen up the bearing shells from the bb shell. never had THAT type, even though i did have a hardrock from the early 90's. sorry i coulnt be more helpfull

Your thinking of the older square fixed cap tool and BB lockring removal. I have the tools for that. This is a "new fangle" type of crank I haven't worked on. I'm thinking it the ISI they are talking about. Even though its an old frame, when the previous owner converted it to SS, I'm thinking he put in a sealed bearing unit. I"m just a little "scared" of breaking it down and not having the tools on hand.

Thanks anyway.
