- Q & A
This is a quality, well made tool that will stand the test of time.
The tool for the job!
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
For all too long I used slim dedicated BB tools that worked, but dug into your hand during use, took up too much room in the toolbox, and typically didn't give you the best leverage during use. This is my go to tool for external bearings like found on my Shimano XT BB. Being able to fix this to my 1/2 drive makes BB install and removal a breeze. I highly recommend upgrading this part of your tool box if you haven't already.
Works like a charm
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
This is so much better for installing/removing external BB cups. I was using a slim wrench before picking this and while doing the job, it was a pain and tended to mar the cups up. This gets the job done with ease and with no marks.

This is the tool you need if you are removing/installing Shimano or GXP type external bearing bottom brackets. The 1/2" socket is nice because you can attach it to a breaker bar without an adapter.
