You wil need a couple of special tools, or be fairly creative with the tools you have.

  1. remove the dustcovers in the crank arms at the crank axle
  2. loosen the crank retaining nut/bolt.
  3. thread in a chank puller and pull the crank arms.
  4. remove the lock ring on the adjustable side of the crank axle (Requires lock ring wrench)
  5. remove adjustable bearing cup.
  6. remove axle and bearings
  7. replace or repair as needed.
Once you have it opened up ou can determine if you need new bearings or crank axle.

SOURCE: the crank on my bike is bent so im trying to get

Hi, As your BMX has 3 piece cranks. Here is how to go about it:

1. Unscrew the plastic cap on the side of the crank - driveside.

2. Take your 14 mm socket and ratchet, unscrew the bolt that holds the crank to the axle. Remove the bolt of both cranks(Left and Right). You can squeeze the handle of the ratchet and the crank together like pliers to give you more leverage.

3. Take the puller and screw it's socket inside the threaded hole of the crank. Hold the crank and turn the puller handle clockwise until the crank arm falls off from the axle by itself. Remove both crank arms.

4. Go to the left side and with the pliers firmly held with both of your hands(This is where the pictures differ, I'm taking a picture at the same time.), unscrew the lockring from the bearing cup.

5. Now again firmly with both hands, grab the bearing cup with the pliers and slowly test the resistance. You do not want to slip here since this will definitely strip the thread on that cup. Hold those pliers hard and go slowly, it should get it going within a quarter turn and then you should be able to unscrew it with your fingers. If not, keep on going and be careful. Remove the cup.

6. Remove the axle and bearing crowns from both sides.

7. Remove the right side bearing cup by unscrewing it in a clockwise fashion. The notch are not very wide, so might have to hold the pliers on the cup with one hand and the handles with the other. Be aware that this cup is often very hard to remove. Again, you can always purchase a specialised wrench just for that purpose.

8. Clean and inspect everything. What you are looking for is a clean and even line on the axle and inside the bearing cups. Any pits in that line will damage the bearings and they will eventually self destruct. Replace any parts that need replacing.

9. Regrease everything, the axle, the cups and the bearings. I use regular green axle grease with a touch of white teflon grease. Make sure that everything you've pulled out of that frame is extra clean, including the hole in the frame where it came from. The most minute piece of dirt can ruin your repack job.

10. Start by installing the right side bearing cup. Screw it in counterclockwise real tight. Insert the bearings and the axle. Insert the bearings in the left bearing cup and screw on the frame. Screw it until you feel resistance. Test to see if the axle turns freely and tug it up and down to see if there is any play. No play? Turns freely? If the answer is yes to both questions, install the lockring on the left bearing cup.

11. Reinstall the crank arms tightly. I would check them again in a few weeks to be sure. When you think it's tight enough, tighten some more. That's it, you're done.

Hope this helps and please vote if so :)

I have a Schwinn that has a serial # TY50602107 on the bottom of the crank case of bike...what year is this bike??? and where was it made???


year is most likely 2007, where it's made: china

Schwinn is no longer an American company, they have changed hands multiple times since the Schwinn family sold it back in the early 1990's and they stopped making bikes in the U.S. well over 30 years ago. The only thing Schwinn about a Schwinn is the logo.

Bad crank bearings can move crank arms small amount.


That would depend on the style of bearings (loose ball or caged balls vs sealed bearings) and possible bottom bracket damage.

Either way, a Bike Shop mechanic would probably need to assess it for you. Special tools are usually involved.

I have a Schwinn Avenue hybrid bike that has a clunking sound in the crank area. Is this normal? I'm wondering if there is some maintenance that I need to do on this bike. Bike was purchased new in May and...


No, not natural. If it only does it when the front derailleur is in the big chain ring, then check to see if the crank is hitting the front derailleur. If that is not it, then the crank arms might need tightening. If not that, then the problem might be in the bottom bracket.
