Bearing Puller Kit for Santa Cruz Bikes

Regular price £11.00

Bearing puller tool kit for Santa Cruz MTB frame pivots - Nomad, Bronson, 5010, Tallboy, etc

Each kit is tailor made with all of the tool sizes required to remove the bearings from the selected Santa Cruz frame (one, two, three or four tools depending on the frame)

Designed to extract the sealed cartridge bearings that are found on many brands of bicycle hub and full suspension MTB frames, this tool can even remove the small bearings,‘blind bearings’ and back-to-back bearings that other tools can’t

  • Designed in the UK
  • Most sizes available, small and large
  • Removes ‘blind’ and back to back bearings
  • Bearings are removed straight, kind to frame

How To

The bearing puller tool is simple to use. As well as the puller you will need a pair of spanners (or one spanner and a set of pliers), a hammer and a rod/drift/old bolt

  • Insert the circular end of the tool into the centre of the bearing. Grip the hexagonal body of the tool with a spanner or pliers and tighten the nut. This will expand the tool, gripping the bearing
  • With the hub/frame supported on a bench or block of wood, the bearing and tool can be tapped out together by simply insert a rod/drift/old bolt into the other side of the bearing and tapping the end of the rod with a hammer

Here's a demonstration using a Specialized chainstay with back-to-back blind bearings:


Note that each tool is specific to one bearing size. It is designed to match the internal diameters and width of the bearing and can’t be used on bearings of different size

We aim to dispatch all orders within 1 working day

Orders within the UK will be shipped by Royal Mail First Class

International orders are welcomed and will be shipped by Royal Mail International Standard (Airmail). Delivery times vary but are typically 2-3 days within Europe and 5-10 days worldwide

BearingPro tools can be selected either by the bearing size or by the bearing's standard reference code.

Standard references take the form of a three or four digit number, such as 688, or 6902 for example. These codes are often moulded onto the bearing's seal. You might see something like 6902-2RS on the seal. The first digits are the standard reference.  The second part (2RS in this case) refers to the seal type and doesn't matter for tool selection.

Note that each tool is specific to one bearing size and can’t be used on bearings with different dimensions.
