Long story short, had to replace my chainset and have ended up doing so with some campag power torques...
I know, I read up on it and could see it wasn't wise, but I've done it now and that's that.
I've just installed them, and bought a 14mm allen key to tighten the non-driveside crank. Another mistake - didn't use a torque wrench.
I was pretty cautious about overtightening so didn't put too much effort in, but the cranks are now not spinning freely. They turn smoothly no issues, but they don't spin more than a couple of revolutions before coming to a stop. I therefore assume I've overtightened them?
Given they're power torque I now can't loosen them, as only the bolt comes out when you undo it. I don't have crank pullers to remove the crank arm.
Before I take it to the shop to sort out:
- have I definitely over-tightened? I.E. should I expect the cranks to keep spinning? And
- Is there a way of sorting this out myself without getting the removal tools?
Many thanks in advance for any help
