I always use LONG con rods , no reason other than they have always been excellent for me ,
other may be just as good , in fact i have heard rumours Mitaka Kits are very similar if not the same .


Mark crank so you can split but get it back together as near as possible .

Press the cranks apart this is hard sometimes it involves cutting then in half with a grinder other times they split relatively easy .
