I got to thinking about this, since I couldn't recall it really being a problem, particularly with Campy cranks. Not to get too anal about it, but I did a little quick measuring of the options I have in the shop and this is what I found:
Campy NR 3-in-diamond crank arm retainer-bolt opening = 20.7 mm Craftsman 12 point 15 mm socket, outside diameter (OD) = 20.2 mm Park CCW-4 double-ended 14/15 mm ratcheting box-end wrench, 15 mm end (OD) = 20.4 mm Ofmega "peanut butter" wrench, 15 mm (OD) = 20.1 mm
So even in my limited research, I have three options that work.
Is this a common problem others have encountered? I seem to recall having the problem with other cranksets, but not Campy. Is it possible that there could be that much difference from crank to crank?
