Okay, I bought a used S3 and Hollowbites. It just came in today with everything together. I've never removed the cranks on any of the old bikes I've had so i have no idea what to do. I removed the two bolts from either side of the crank arm, and the one that goes through the arm into the axle. Now what the heck do i do? I cant get the darn things off.

just loosen the pinch bolts, undo the ones which go into the axcel, and i use a rubber mallet and tap the off :)

cool, I got the crank arms off.. I just gotta get the axle out. I would guess along the same lines? Just hit it with a rubber mallet?

a bigger hammer

just dont hit the seals or inner race. thatll destroy the bearings. hit the outter race,hit it out a bit,then go 90* in either direction,do the same and keep going around hitting it out evenly.

and there you have your bearings (hopefully)

Yes but do NOT use a chisel to remove the bearings, i have a friend that did that and it went right through the bearing case... just be careful and don't be afraid to ask for more help...

if you are getting new ones just destroy them little basta*ds, and when you go to put it all back together make sure you use a bike specific grease and it will prevent this from happening again
