Hey. I have a Veloce 10spd PT compact crank arm with the remains of the bolt inside. Hoping the break hasn't buggered the thread and it can be salvaged. In case not, anyone got a used one they can sell? I don't mind too much about condition, it's just for the commuter. Need 170mm arm length.
Can always offer swap for Centaur PT compact crankset with 172.5mm arms in decent condition. Can put pics up in a bit but they're in a box somewhere at the moment (I'm moving house).
Also have one or two other bits I could swap - Deda pista bars, Rapha overshoes, pannier rack and bag...
I went to my LBS and they were able to remove a broken off bolt that had gotten seized in the threads n the crank itself. Probably easier to try this instead of sorting a replacement straight away, but of course there's a small risk it could be too seized.
I've got a pretty heavily used Veloce 10spd crankset that you could have for postage. But, it is silver, and I think it has 172.5 mm arms. Will check the length tonight.
Yes, 172.5 mm. Any good?
Yeah, this is my first port of call. Hoping cranks can be saved.
Cheers! Ideally I need 170mm but perhaps I can give you a shout once I know whether LBS can get the bolt out?
Here are some pictures, also @ghostface
There is plenty of superficial wear, some deeper marks from the puller I used (I think invisible when they are installed), but everything is mechanically sound, splines undamaged, threads all sharp.
Bottom bracket is included, I'll leave the bearings on/in but unless I'm much mistaken they need replacing, chainrings will be removed, they are in a terrible state!
Edit: for basic postage options to the UK (I'm not in the UK): if I can pack it to be less than 1 kg, for 2-4 day delivery it is 15 pounds, 5-9 days is 10 pounds; if it comes out more than 1 kg it will be 24 pounds in 2-4 days, 18 for 5-9 day delivery, tracking etc (only available on the faster ones) adds 9 pounds.
Hiya. Sorry for delayed reply and thanks for providing details. In the end the lbs was able to drill out the bolt and save my crankset - so all good!
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
