Most bike shops have them sent out to specialty shops that actually split, balance and press your crank back together.

Might be best to ask your local bike shop for a recommendation...they might want to contract it themselves though.

I'd advise against "Joe's-uncle's-neighbour's-best-friend" types who happen to have a press, a brass mallet and willingness to experiment with your crank. 👍

+1 This is true in the Minneapolis area and probably all large cities. There is a shop or 2 that have a reputation for doing good work and that's why the dealer goes there. Try asking your favorite bike shop. "Do you do your own cylinder boring here?"

The answer is most likely NO. Then try asking who does it...Some shops don't like to say who does it, like if you know, they will lose some business. But it's true, crank work should be done by a seasoned pro, not your neighbor with the big hammer. (Note: The shop that does the boring most likely does the cranks.)
