Assuming you’re turning it the right way (easy mistake to make!), spray it with PlusGas until you’re dizzy from the vapours. Then, just as you think your lungs, head and bloodstream can’t take any more, spray some more PlusGas for good measure. Leave for 20ish minutes, then try again. GT85 and WD40 are poor releasing agents.Posted 8 years agoStuFMember
the way I do it is:
drive side crank arm parallel to the downtube pointing up towards the head tube, put the spanner on the pedal so that its pointing back toward the backwheel/bottom bracket and the get on the bike as if to cycle off and put your right heel on the spanner and stand on it (don’t forget to have your brakes on)- this way I know I’m trying to turn it the correct way.
then repeat with the left pedal, point the crank arm towards the head tube, spanner on pointing towards back wheel and then stand on spanner with your left heel

The last part of my ss build is the pedals. I got some cheap eggbeaters from Evans but there’s one problem; the old pedals aren’t shifting. I cable tied the crank to the frame and pretty much swung on the pedal wrench but it’s not budged. Any tips or should I just run it to the lbs (they did me proud on the freewheel).Posted 8 years ago
