The new products are coming thick and fast just now! This one is an obvious next step. We now have bearing presses for the most common bottom bracket bearings: 24x37x7mm, 25x37x7mm and 30x42x7mm.
These two bearing sizes are employed by many bottom bracket manufacturers, including Hope and others, often using the following references:
- MR2437 (24mm ID bearing)
- 6805 (25mm ID bearing)
- 6806 (30mm ID bearing)
Installing bearings straight and accurately is important if you want your bearings to last. It’s particularly critical for bottom bracket bearings; these bearings have a large diameter relative to the width and depth of the races, so are especially vulnerable to damage and premature wear due to misalignment of the races, or twisting during installation.
The new presses are on sale here.
