BMX Tech Tip: Budget Bottom Bracket Tool


Here’s a way to make a Bottom Bracket tool to press those bearings into place for only a few bucks. All you need is a long half inch bolt (over an inch wider than your bottom bracket), a couple of nuts (preferably with a flange – but not locking), two very large washers (a larger diameter than your bearings), and two smaller washers that match the nuts. It works great. Hit up your local hardware store.
