Learn from Sportsmith with this video how to remove a lock ring from a bottom bracket assembly using a lock ring tool. The bike in our video example is a LeMond Revmaster.
To complete this procedure you will need to have already removed the crank arm bolt and the crank arm from your indoor cycle.
- The tool has 3 notches that will line up with the lock ring.
- Once you have the tool aligned with the lock ring turn the lock ring counterclockwise to loosen it.
- This can be difficult depending on the amount of rust that has built up on the threads.
- Once it is loosened you should be able to remove the lock ring completely.
