Remove Cannondale Road Bike BB30 Crank - Without Special Tool

Onsite repairs from the "van"

You are servicing a Cannondale Synapse with a 3 piece crank and the bb30 is worn and you don't have the recommended tool?

Improvise:

Cannondale Synapse

Place drift through axle 
Find a drift that fits inside the axle and 5 mm shorter! (92 mm)

Screw back in crank arm plug

And use Park Tool CCP-22 extractor tool

Extract crank arm off

Carefully remove spacers

Water droplets inside bottom bracket

Drift I used was a tap holding tool

Spacers and seals placed on the axle and cable tied for safe keeping
