Crank Extractor for Stronglight Cranks
Similar to the above remover, but for 23.35x1.0 mm extractor threads used in the older versions of Stronglight Crank arms. It works for both the Stronglight 49D and Stronglight 93 cranks.
Fixed-Cup Wrench Clamp
Use your present bottom bracket fixed-cup spanner wrenches to install or to remove cups with maximum torque without damaging your knuckles, wrenches, or the frame finish. Since the bottom bracket does not have to be disassembled (as with other fixed cup tools) it is very convienent to use just to check that the cup is tightened properly. The Fixed Cup Wrench Clamp fits crank spindles with an 8x1.thread. An adapter is available for use with 12 and 15 mm threads. An alternate adapter bolt is available for use with "stud type" spindles which use a nut to retain the crank arm. Part #FCC-2
Locking Lockring Wrench
This tool clamps to most common bottom bracket lockrings with specially contoured jaws to remain centered and prevent the tool from slipping, permitting the lockring to be tightened more precisely and with more torque. By increasing the clamping force, the adjustable cup can be made to turn with the lockring to further assist in a precise adjustment. It is also useful for removing lockrings from fixed gear hubs.
