Tools for disassembly?

Postby Crawf » Sat May 10, 2008 10:42 pm

Hi, just wondering if there is complete tool set out there that would allow me to remove all components back to the bare frame?

A set of hex wrenches will do 80% of the parts.

You then need specific tools to remove your crankset, and bottom bracket.

If you want to remove the headset as well, there are some DIY instructions on the web, otherwise there are also dedicated headset removal tools that you can buy, as well as the installation tool.

Or you can just strip as much as you can with the hex wrench, bring the bike into your LBS and ask them to remove the rest. My LBS will do it for me free, as its just a 5 min task with the right tools.

Different brands and models often require specific tools. So the complete kit will very much depends on what you have.

I'm finding my Cell Team frame to be a very harsh ride hence the move to a new frame.
It's running full 105 group set, should I expect the bottom bracket to be the hardest part? And assuming it's english thread right?
Absolute newbie here, but I'd like to give it a crack then hit up the LBS if I hit a wall.

Can you post a picture of the outside of the BB ?

Depending on the bottom bracket, there is a spanner that fits over the external spline on the locking nut.

Is it like this ?

I bought the bottom one for my bike and bought this tool to replace it

It's the second one sandman.

Whereabouts did you pick up that tool?

Found this on ebay, think it should do it?

I got it from Chainreaction

The tool on ebay is for Hollowtech II which is exactly what the park tool is for therefore it should do the job. Just note, its made out of stamped metal, they can be a bit flimsy. I've used cone spanners made the same way and they wear out pretty quickly, the Park tools are **definately** a cut and of course price above the rest but they will last.

Cheers..Pete
