Title: Local crank refinisher recommendation?
Post by: jason_hamilton on January 21, 2013, 06:01:49 PM
Had a rod bearing fail on my crank and had to peel what was left of bearing off the journal. Need someone who can expertly assess the level of machining required and perform same. It's a balanced Berg 84mm with counterweights. Any favourites?

wow those bearings are spun! I've seen it many times. Make sure that the crank isn't scored to far. I'd hate to say it but you may need a replacement crank.
