    Ah, yeah, you're right. I didn't think RF had made a non self extracting crank in a long time. But maybe I'm wrong. But regardless, yeah, looks like it needs an extractor tool.

    Yeah, news to me too but that's what it looks like.

    My wifes 5010 has a Raceface crank that looks identical that requires a crank puller.... but it is a 2018 vintage.

    Rf made the turbine and aeffect in both cinch and non-cinch (requiring the puller) for a few years. Only way of really telling is by attempting to remove as far as I can tell

    Yeah, the new’ish RF Aeffect cranks are not self extracting. I think the older Aeffects were. If no 10mm outer cap/bolt, then not s.e. Here’s a YouTube video:

    Yes, which was a bit surprising. I didn't know they made slotted ones. If that is the cause of my problems it will be replaced soon anyway

    ^thank you everyone. Definitely more of a pia for me. Need more tools. This may be a support the local lbs job as I'm really questioning how the bash guard will attach. Doesn't look like there is room based on that video. Idk

    when I swapped the chain ring (30 to 28) on my Yeti I got the Affect crank off by holding the bike off the floor by the chainring and gently tapping the spindle with a ballpeen, it didn't take much, kinda ghetto but it worked and no damage to spindle

    I thot the Race face affect product was a pretty good one
