- Q & A
Is this necessary?
Unquestionably, a tool like this might offer some appeal to those who feel it will simplify the maintenance task, but I've been maintaining and servicing my bottom bracket bearings (and all other bearings) for many years by the traditional methods. I tried this tool (borrowed from a friend) and thought of it as a somewhat cool tool, but as a personal note, I would prefer to stick to conventional methods and reallocate the $55 to some other special tool or an upgrade.
Bottom line...unnecessary expenditure for a task that's not difficult to begin with. But I'm sure if offers appeal to some. Now if you could produce a tool that would lubricate your BB without having to remove the crank and spindle, That would be a 'need-to-have' tool.
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Extremely great tool, chris king would hit a home run adding this addition to there bottom bracket, makes changing grease a snap!
Nice to have
I like to do it myself instead of paying someone else. Good to freshen up the bearings every once in a while, and there is no point in buying quality gear and then failing to maintain it properly. Also, the silver nipple is a Zerk fitting that works with the Speedplay grease gun's Zerk adaptor.
Is this for the 24mm or the 30mm bottom bracket?
Pretty sure this is for the 24mm. The other is listed as "Chris King 30mm injector" specifically.
Is this for the 24mm or 30mm bottom bracket?
This particular item is for 24mm BBs and CKG0065 is the 30mm version.
