I want to give my bottom bracket a service, and have a look at the condition of my Crankset, as when dropping down from top ring to middle ring (under power) it will often jam in between.
I know I need a crank remover tool, and I can pick one up on Amazon for under a tenner. But as I’ve an old style Raleigh, and the bottom bracket (cup) needs pin spanner to remove it. Two choices adjustable pin spanner, or specific spanner, What dimensions are needed to choose the right spanner? (Assuming that I can’t just go to a shop and try one before I buy)
Second thing, as there is not wobble or play on the crank when I pedal, I’m hoping that the cups are ok, if I need ball bearing I’m guessing that they will be standard sized and readily available, or do I need to buy from a cycling shop.
I’ve always used standard multipurpose grease, for everything that needs grease on the bike, is it worth spending more on Lithium HT grease?
