sram Red tools

Postby toolonglegs » Fri Mar 15, 2013 3:01 am

What do I need that I wouldn't for Shimano... any special tools ( or tool tricks? ). All the bikes will be Cannondale Evo's, pretty sure all with BB30. I know one will be Shimano.
Hopefully I won't have to change cranks at any stage... mainly just swapping cassettes and replace tubulars.
Also the best youtube videos anyone has found for adjusting / servicing.
I have worked on a few Sram equipped bikes but not a lot. Not too worried as long as I am prepared ... as long as everyone stays upright and the weather is nice :D .
There will be no shops around for 90% of the time so need to pack everything with me.

Changing BB30 cranks is really easy. Removing the bearings and pressing them in needs a special tool. Here is what I use:

Cheers, I will get someone to bring a bb tool ( don't really want to buy one! ) ... Glad it is all easy :) .

All you need to remove the cranks is a 10mm Allen key.
