    Stuck Chainring Bolts
    I just acquired a used campy crank and the chainring bolts are not budging (even when I use the spanner to hold the back)
    Any tips on this?
    Should I soak it, or just drop some lube in there or what?

    Penetrating oil.

    Just use some penetrating oil on the the big ring side ( the Male side). A few cleanings ago, I applied some of the Anti-seizing compound, normally used for disimilar metals or steel parts, to the threads and am happy to report that they never loosened during riding, but unscrewed with ease with the old 5mm Allen wrench.
