I've managed to mangle the head on the self extracting bolt on my '06 evolve xc's. Looking on CRC they only offer spares for the "x-type".
Anyone know if these will fit or, if not, where I can get one?

Cheers

  • I've got the 06 Evolve and Deus cranks on my bikes, so I can say from experience that the spares from CRC do fit.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks fella, trouble is I've just noticed no bleedin stock at CRC. Done a massive google trawl and can't find anyone who stocks them.

    Well I wonder if its because the design has changed on the newer raceface cranks and they no longer use the self extracting bolt.

    anjs, looks like the same set-up on the new version

    The hex bolt is made of butter though, I'm careful and use good quality hex keys, very annoying, going for SLX when this one wears out.

    Well mine is on a Trance X so I guess the oem version must be different. 10 mm bolt and then a isis crank extractor is required. There are number of posts about it.
