I have Rotor cranks on my road bike and would like to take them off as I am selling my bike. Have you any idea how to take them off and what tools are required.

Thanks
Gavin

    probably just some allen keys, if you want to take off the bb too you'll need a bb tool to match whichever one you've got

    rotor manuals are here, find the one for your cranks and it should be straightforward...

    Bought a pair, complete with Rotor rings. (Already have a set of the rings - now I can fit them on both my bikes)

    Thats what I plan to do. I have the older Agilis cranks which I am going to put on my spare bike. Where did you buy yours from ? What price do they sell for in the UK ?

    Where did I buy what? The rings? From velotechservices.com - the UK distributor. Prices are pretty much the same everywhere in the UK for the rings. I paid £160 I think for a set of the TT rings. (But only paid £190 for a set of Rotor 3D cranks complete with the TT rings second-hand).

    My Rotor 3D cranks arrived today. Very impressed with how light they are. Look great with the TT Q-Rings on them as well. Perfect addition to my Cervelo S3

    Ok thanks. That seems a very reasonable price. I live in Spain so I am going to price them up here. Maybe they are a little cheaper here as Rotor is a Spanish company.

    They are much much cheaper here in Spain than UK. (at least at the prices I got them they are!)

    That's interesting. I looked at prices from Spain and they didn't seem much cheaper. Can you provide a source?

    Bought them from one of my LBS, S'escapada. www.sescapada.com

    I get a discount, but even without it Qrings were 110 Euros for a set. I didnt actually buy the cranks (I bought some KCNC aluminium ones off the ´Bay for less than 100 bucks) but I remember when I looked at teh Rotor cranks there they were much cheaper than Id seen on any internet shop. The shop mechanics coming up here this weekend for a ride so I can ask him for a quote if you want, but of course the shippping will probably kill you.
