How To Remove & Fit A Press Fit Bottom Bracket On A Road Bike
Published on January 9th 2017
Press fit bottom brackets are here to stay. Here's how to remove and replace BB86 and BB30 bottom brackets on your road bike.
Here's our guide to removing and replacing your press fit bottom bracket. Bottom brackets like the BB86 and BB30 are increasingly common on high end carbon fiber road bikes – especially those made after 2010. While press fit bottom brackets may need a few more tools to work on, they are not too difficult. With the right tools, you'll be able to replace your bottom bracket quickly and efficiently without damaging your expensive carbon fiber frame.
The tools that you will need:
- A bearing press
- Park BBT-90 or Bottom Bracket Bearing Drift
