Turning the hex head counterclockwise will extract the crank, assuming you can get it turning. If that works, no need to take off the extractor ring, and no need to use anything else to re-install.

I have BioPace on several of my bikes and like it fine. I don't really notice much difference, but for me it seems to work best on mountain bike range gearing.

The 92 catalogue doesn't show at 1000. Is it possible it's a 91? It shows "Deore DX SIS" bar ends.
