Help me out here folks. I see what appears to be the crack in the web in the jpg titled pal2.jpg on the listing for the Paletti:
Is this particular crankarm toast or can it be reclaimed by filing down to the innermost extent of the crack?
I have a few NR cranks and haven't taken a file to one of them yet. If any one has a jpg showing the appropriate depth and radius of a properly filed crankarm, I'd be delighted to have a copy. If not, a brief narrative on the procedure would certainly be helpful to me and to others who haven't had the pleasure of breaking one of these (yet).
