How To Remove Square Tapered BMX Cranks Video

    How to remove square tapered BMX cranks is a video I have been asked to do a few times over the years.

    To some it might be one of the more simple things you can do to a bike but others may not have seen it done or are not so confident.

    I have also seen people trying to remove square tapered cranks by bashing them off, a big no no!

    Hopefully this video will demonstrate just how simple it’s done.

    Required tools

    • A crank removal tool
    • A shifter to tighten and remove the crank removal tool
    • A spanner or allen key to undo your back wheel

    We hope you find the video useful.
