Bearing Puller for Bottom Brackets - Expanding Type
*** Buy one, get one 30% off any mix of pullers and presses (applies to individual tools only, not kits) ***
This 'expanding' type tool is designed to extract the sealed cartridge bearings that are found in many bottom brackets, or, in the case of Shimano style moulded pressfit bottom brackets, to remove the whole bottom bracket.
We offer two designs of bottom bracket bearing puller:
This 'expanding' type which is suitable for a wide range of bottom brackets with spindles of the selected size
We also offer a 'wind-out' type puller which is avaliable in a wider range of sizes and can remove the bearing from a press-fit bottom bracket without removing the whole bottom bracket, but requires a recess behind the bearing for the tool to gain purchase and a surface around the bearing to push against.
Please feel free to drop us a note if you're not sure which you need!
Bearing are removed straight, kind to your frame
We also sell matching bearing presses and offer 30% off every second tool: add two or more extractors or presses to the basket before checking out
Shipping is fast and free in the UK
Combined shipping for international customers buying more than one extractor or press
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 frame supported in a stand, across your lap or blocks 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
This 'expanding type' tool is compatible with most bottom brackets with axles of the listed size. It can be used with threaded bottom brackets or pressfit bottom brackets, but in the case of pressfit bottom brackets it may remove the whole BB rather than just the bearing (in this case the removal process can be repeated to remove the bearing from the BB cup if the cup can be suitably supported).
This tool is also suitable for use with Shimano style moulded resin BB where the whole BB is repalced rather than just the bearings.
We have another design of bottom braket bearing puller that works well with many bottom brackets with replacable bearings. It is avaliable in 24, 25, 29 and 30mm sizes. See our 'wind-out' type bottom bracket bearing puller for a description of that tool.
Please feel free to get in touch if you are unsure of which tool would be best for you. If you find that your BB is incompatible with the tools that you have ordered then you can return the tool to us for a refund.
We offer a comprehensive range of bearing presses, available in all of the same sizes and kits as our bearing pullers. We offer 30% off every second item bought from our single tools menus, including mixes of pullers and presses

Ourtools 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.
Alternatively, tools can be selected by their inside (ID) and outside (OD) diameters and width.
Note that each tool is specific to one bearing size and can’t be used on bearings with different dimensions.
