Okay so i was fitting SPD's to my old Shimano crank tonight which proved too much for it, well it seemed, in removing the original pedals they were so seized i removed half the ally thread with them. Consequently, the left hand spd came off on my ride home tonight, thread proper stripped.
Now i have an old Hollowtech XT crank (with new bearings) from my Speccy Epic winging it's way to me from UK. But a few questions. This old bike has an old integral bb, it's a Steven's frame. So few q's has anyone got a spanner i could borrow to remove it, or maybe point me to a shop or pop over to your place use your tools for half hour, im near Seebach. Im guessing i need a pin spanner?
And more importantly will my Hollowtech bearings and crank fit the frame ok?
