  1. BB92 install, skip ahead to step 7 for removal
    • BB92 install, skip ahead to step 7 for removal

    • Start by measuring and noting your BB shell width

  2. For aluminum or steel frames, grease the BB shell
    • For aluminum or steel frames, grease the BB shell

    • For carbon frames, contact your frame manufacturer. Grease may not be compatible with all frames

    • Slide the cup into the frame as far as it will go. It should just start to go into the frame.

    • Place the tool over the cup

    • If you don't have our BB92 tool, that's ok. You can use any flat faced bearing press. Just be sure to only press on the outer race of the bearing.

    • Use a bearing press to slowly press in the BB cup, by sure the cup goes in straight

    • In this case we our using a Hive bearing press tool, but many other threaded bearing presses will work

      • On the other side of the tool we are using a flat plate against the frame

    • Tighten until the cup is pressed in all the way

      • check the cup all the way around to make sure it is flush with the BB shell

      • Do not over tighten the cup, especially on carbon frames. Tighten the cup until it is flush with the frame and no more

    • Insert center tube into the frame

    • Press the center tube against the BB cup that is installed

    • Extend the center tube so it is flush with the BB shell on the side without the BB installed

    • Install the second BB cup repeating the procedure from step 5

    • Refer to the spindle spacer chart and your BB shell width for the correct spindle spacer setup for your frame

    • To remove the BB cup, we recommend using a Park Tool headset cup removal tool
