Default crank problems


^^listen to John

Also, sorry, no "poor man's fix," it was really unfortunate to break
your uni while you're still in your newbie days...if it's moving when
it's tight you have to replace it.

Tighten it up, see if it still moves. If it does, stop, get all the
right tools(crank extractor, socket/hex wrench, etc.), check the hub
and cranks for damage, and report back to us or just buy new parts.

It would also help if you told us exactly what unicycle you have so we
know how to help....

Default crank problems


I will guess that you do. It helps to beat these cranks on with a mallet
and wood block. This will smash together a big contact patch of metal,
then you tighten the axle nut.

Really, we need a description of the axle that the crank fits on. Does
it look square ?
