Question about Raleigh USA Bicycle Company Passage 3.0

Raleigh Bicycle Passage 3.0 Crank arms really wobbly, have been told bearings are shot in the bottom bracket. I'm pretty mechanically inclined. Is this something i can order and install? It looks like once you get the crank arms off i'll need a special tool?

Yes, once you remove the crank arms and the pedals, you will need a special tool to remove the bottom bracket that contains the sealed bearings.

Here is a set of nice quick YouTube videos on how to replace a bottom bracket which shows the tools and techniques required:

Just use your mouse to click on the link, which is the underlined and highlighted text just above. This will automatically open a new browser window for you and display the video.

Here is a link to the general description of your bike:

And here is a link to the technical details:

If you want to replace the bottom bracket yourself, just bring those details into your local bike shop and ask them for the correct tool and replacement bottom bracket to purchase. If you just wanted to have them do the work, I don't think they would charge you more than $30 labour for it, plus the cost of parts of course.

Anyway, please comment back here to this page if you have any questions, have difficulty accessing the links, or just require further general assistance and I will respond as soon as I see it.

Thank you very much and good luck.

Joe.

Failed to install in my 2013 trek mtb bike. what tools needed for us be able to install or need washer. Also need to know the comlete package and parts included when you buy it


First, you're going to need to know what type of bottom bracket is on the frame of said bike. Hopefully it will be a standard threaded BB. It could be a BB90 or PF90. If there are no threads in the BB where your BB cups then your working with a press fit system. Let's start with what should come with your Truvativ Noir Crankset. You'll have the drive side arm & spindle, non-drive arm. 3x2.5mm spacers,1x wave washer. The Noir crank uses a 24mm diameter spindle, same as Shimano. SO, if your replacing a hollow tech II crank it should be a pretty standard affair. You'll need to know how wide your BB is on the bike frame to know how many 2.5mm spacers to use. The wave washer goes on the non-drive side against the bearing. Make sure to grease the BB before installation. If there are threads in the frame you'll be using outboard bearings. If it's a press fit system you'll be using cartridge bearings that press directly into the frame. Good Luck!

The left arm of the cranck don't come out,so i can't take the cranckset off the bottom bracket.Every bolt it's already untight. Thanks!! Stefano


There are 3 bolts to remove: 1 the main large cap in the center of the arm, and 2 bolts holding the arms in place. Remove all three completely. If the arm still will not come off easily, then take a large screwdriver and work in between the bearings and the crank arm and gently pry off.

The trick is too only move a little then go to another section and move another small amount. until the crank arm wants to loosen. The most likely culprit is a small black piece of plastic that is holding up the works.

Hi trying to re grease the pedal sprocket bearings on my Ross Rock Machine mountain bike. I got off the pedal arm on the right side but can't figure out how the left side comes off. The pedal arm looks...


Bottom brackets are sealed, removing the seal will have potential for damage. If it's making noise, replace it or better yet upgrade as a crankset. You'll have new crankarms, bottom bracket, chainrings with it. Unless you have the correct bicycle tools (not general automotive tools) you won't be able to pull your crank and even reach the seal for the bottom bracket.

Cant get the pins out of the crank brackets on the bottom of the crank. got the bolts out but there are pins on each side of the bolts. most engines have two more bolts on the outside edge but this one...


The bottom bracket is the dohickey that connects your two crank-arms together, and secures them within the bottom of the bike frame. The bottom bracket has threads around the outside that secure it into the hole in the frame. Inside, bearings surround a rotating spindle -- this lets the pedals turn free from the frame. Each side of the spindle has a mechanism to connect your crank. This may be square tapered bolts, a toothed ring (splined bottom bracket), or even a threaded bolt. The bottom bracket type must match the crank type (a crank with a square hole must be mounted on a BB with the square receiver).
Bottom brackets also come in different widths, and with different spindle widths: the bracket width should match the frame, and the spindle width should put the cranks out away from the frame, and allow the front derailleur to transfer the chain onto the smallest ring without hitting the bike frame. The BB will usually have its size printed on the cartridge, but you have to take it out to read the numbers. For example, a 68x116 bottom bracket is 58 mm wide as it fits into the frame, and the spindles are 116 mm apart. If you wanted the pedals a bit closer together, you might buy a 68x112.5 BB.
Sealed Bottom Bracket: If your bottom bracket is a sealed cartridge unit (as most are nowadays), it can't be serviced or adjusted. If it grinds, wobbles, or catches, it must be replaced as a unit. Just remove the old cartridge and replace the entire thing.
Take the chain off the chainrings, and lay it on the frame next to the bottom bracket. With the bike clamped in a workstand, shove the base of the crank-arms side-to-side to detect motion in the bottom bracket. Now try to pull the cranks away from, then back towards the bike to detect wobble. Turn the crank and listen for noises within the bottom bracket. These tests will help you identify a damaged bottom bracket.
To replace the bottom bracket, you have to do some major stripping! You must remove both the left crank and the right crank arm plus chainrings. See the crank section for additional information.

Fitted tiagra triple to cannondale caad9 frame. bottom bracket creaking


There are many possible causes for the noise you're hearing, but the most common source of creaks is loose crank arms.

You might be able to eliminate the sound by tightening the crank arms on the bottom bracket spindle. However, I would recommend removing both crank arms from the spindle and reinstalling them after lubricating the surfaces where the spindle and crank arm meet as well as the crank arm bolts. Use a high quality grease (not oil, such as Triflow) or anti-seize compound.

Torque the crank arm bolts to the factory spec. Crank arms bolts can take a lot of torque -- about 300 ft/lbs. Most people don't have a torque wrench, so you can "guesstimate" this by applying about 50 lbs of force on the end of a 6" long wrench.

Other possibilities are loose chainrings (check each bolt where they are attached to the crank), pedals (lubricate/service bearings), bottom bracket (check it is properly torqued), chain (look for tight links), derailleur idler gear, crack in frame.

I HAVE A MGX MOUNTAIN BIKE. WERE THE PEDAL ARE


im certain that model has a 3 piece crank set up. the inner crank bearing jam nut has loosened up or the bearings themselves have gone bad.first check to see if its tight, if it is then it will require a replacement set of bearing that are a pretty standard size to all bikes and can be purchased at nearly every bike shop.
