How to remove a mountain bike crank without crank puller tool, x-type Race Face self-extracting. This video shows how to remove a crank arm without a tool on an xtype Race Face mountain bike crank. The method in this video will not work for all mountain bikes, just those with built-in self extractors.
Bike mechanics already know that with self-extracting cranks, in this case x-type, a crank puller tool is not needed. No tool! Love it. Weekend warriors however commonly remove the integrated puller first, that looks like a dust cap, and then are left staring at a situation that looks like a puller tool is needed. Leave the dust cap in and use it as an integrated puller and you are on your way.
