Hi Pinkers

I'm running a set of Cannondale SI cranks on my bike, it was a 2x but i have it set up 1x deleted the 2x spider &found an Absolute Blk direct mount Chring all good.

I've been looking for a set of self extracting crank bolts for these cranks cannondale doesnt seem to offer anything but the " self extracting crank bolt Tool" that is not meant to live on the bike..it does what a puller does... i have a puller...that cant live on the bike either.

I hear there are some other cranks that are similar in design to the Cannondales but i'm not clear which those are and if their self extr. setups will work on the C'dale's

the RF Cinch setups look REALLY close but cant tell for sure till i buy and try...


Anyone get any self extracting bolts on a set of these C'dale cranks?


Thank you in advance.

You are going to need to buy the tool. Cannondale cranks arent meant to use a crank extracting bolt. From what i can tell, there isnt enough of a shoulder for there to be a extracting bolt plus a retaining cap. If you do find a cap and bolt that "fits" Im under the impression there wont be enough thread contact to prevent damage to the threads while extracting.
