    Can someone confirm that removing the drive side crank is done with an 8mm allen key? Undoing normally - anti clockwise? The crank then slides off and can be replaced?

    cheers all

    Not quite. It's done with a crank puller. The bolt you see is just there to hold the crank on during use (and yes, it unscrews in the normal anti-clockwise direction) but the crank won't just slide off the BB once that bolt is undone. You'll still need a crank puller.
