MTB K2 Hardtail Build Project - The New Crank & 1x8 Conversion Part1

So I have some 'down' time due to a broken foot (see moto vids) and I thought I would spend a bit of that time building a hardtail mountain bike. This is part 1 of installing a new crankset, bottom bracket and pedals on my K2 Zed 1.0 and converting it to a 1x8 setup. Pretty straight forward really where the biggest issue was getting the old BB out I had to use a pretty serious impact wrench to get that broken loose. I picked up the crank and bracket tools for about $10 as well. I also removed the front derailleur and cable but had to leave the controls as they are brake and shifters combined into one. These will come off shortly though when I replace the brakes in another video.

I've actually never wrenched on a pedal bike before (to any serious degree) so I consider this a fun challenge and learning experience. So hang tight with me and we'll see how this all turns out!

Thanks for watching!
