You never preload those bearings before adding the crank arm...

@ridesofjapan I need your Help:

My current bikes have BSA and I love it. It's not perfekt but cheap and easy to replace the bearings!

1. trackbike Dura Ace (these bearings are so cheap for dura-ace)

2. other trackbike ceramicspeed

3. MTB sram dub

4. cx sram gxp

The problem is that my roadbike is a speci allez sprint and comes with BB30.

It's my nice weather bike but I still ride in the rain sometimes as it rains a lot here in Switzerland.

After every single ride in the rain it's noisy and I have to bring it to a bikeshop as I'm not realy confident with hammering and pressing metalbearings in a metalframe. This is a bad solution for me and I can imagine the frame does't realy like the bb30 change to often neither.

Would a BB30 to BSA adapter (cannondale/fsa/sram) be a good solution or do you recomend going for a BB30 with beather seals (kogel has crossseals for example). I would prefere to convert the frame to BSA but I know a general rule is to build bikes with as few adapters as po

Anyone have experience using the Wakos Brake Protector for Trek BB90 bottom bracket bearing installation? Looks like a better option than retaining compound.

I find your videos really helpful! I brought a BBT9 - bottom bracket and crank arm tool (HollowTech II) and now realise I don't need it as I require a Shimano Tl-bb12 Installation Tool 160mm For Press-fit Bb to remove the Bttom bracket and Shiamno BB press tool? I've slightly new to this and limited budget aha. If anyone can help with recommendations and advice I would really appreciate it.


Its easy when you have the right tools (and there are many much less expensive than the shimano ones, yet they still work great) and i actually dont know why so many people make a fuss about the pressfit ones. never had a problem and i also didn´t need an absurd amount of force to press them out on all frames i worked on.

Your videos are great!

Hey! any chance you know what's in it or can snap a photo of the label? Hoping to find a similar type of brake grease in the US that is comparably thick and effective.

Mike Chivers 

Great video. You make maintenance look so easy. Where did you learn how to do it all?

Park Tool bracket remover also helps remove the cups!? instead the Shimano remove tool.

Great video! To me it was definitely also excruciating to press it in. If you could choose freely between the different bottom brackets, which one would you go for?


Thank you.

Tomas Cicman

I have to try and get my first BB86 bottom bracket in using a homemade tool and I'm simply having the issue of getting them in straight, it's super annoying. :/


I'm still surprised in this day that someone doesn't have a BB remover that doesn't involve using a mallet and scarying the living daylights out of every bike owner

Thanks for this video! I’m looking into a great bike that has a PF B.B. (I know nothing about it) but the reviews on PF are not good...
