I would say you can't... but i say alot of things...

to me it looks like it wasn't meant to come off. you need a new crank set/ chainring

others?

File those teeth down and use the big ring as a guard--use those round holes to put a ring on the inside.

This is actually the best advice. Those cheap big rings are thin stamped metal, and without the second chainring on there, they will eventually fold over when you mash on the pedals.

Or, just get some real cranks.

52/18 is pretty close to 46/16.
52/19 would be a little easier to push and have 19 skid pads vs. 9
still cruising at around 20mph at a 90 cadence


By the way, nice cat poster in the first pic

since im going to stick with this crank until i have more loot, what are some good online stores besides nashbar,jensonusa, and bikeisland?

im looking for cogs/lockring,pedals w/straps and bar tape. I would prefer to get it all from one place but some of the sites only have part of what i want, shipping(minus bike island) is gonna kill me , I'm on a budget.
