    That's basically it. I've seen the Tech section on Saints on Shimano's site but it's not very detailed. So far I know I need the little plastic star tool for the non-drive side bolt.

    BTW, all I need to do is remove the right crank/ ?spindle? to install an e13 LG 1.

    You may need to remove the right BB cup to put the guide behind it unless your bike is ISCG equipped. Park sells a combo tool for a BB cup remover and star tool. Also when you tighten it back up work the pinch bolts on the left crank alternately until tight.

    Loosen the two 5mm allens on the left crank arm.
    Use the little Shimano tool to remove the "preloader cap"
    Left crank arm will slide off, then just pull right crankarm/spindle out. If it's tough, don't be afraid to give a little love tap to the end of the spindle.

    rubber mallet will work for this. AKA the problem solver.

    What kind of frame is this? If it doesn't have ISCG tabs that you will need to mount the adapter under the bb cup. I can take pics of mine when I get home from work if you need clarification.

    Just to clarify, It does have ISCG tabs and it's on a Rocky Mountain RMX. And thanks for the help.

    Easy as pie. You don't have to remove the bearing cup then.

    Do the Saints have the little plastic plate in the pinch bolt slot? I forget. If there's a little black somthing in the slot that the pinch bolts squeeze down, once you have the bolts loose and the star nut off, you need to flip that up. Stick somthing pointy it from the outside and flip it up.
