Hi Guys

My BB30 BB has started to creak so I've decided to take the cranks out and give it all a clean, the problem I have is I have FSA cranks and don't have a spanner the correct size for the preload adjuster, I've had a look online for the spanner and the only place that sells them is Chain Reaction Cycles and they don't have any.

Does anyone have any advice on where else I can get this tool or could I get away with a large adjustable spanner?

    Any spanner than fits will do the job, even if it's an adjustable spanner.

    I bought a tool kit from LIDL/Aldi last year and it came with a massive spanner for oldskool headsets (iirc)

    It fits my FSA preload jobbie spot on......

    Maybe look for a headset spanner?
