Guys,

I want to overhaul my Arch Supreme. What do you use to remove the bearing lock nut? I read in the manual that a special tool is needed from Avid. Not sure if SRAM would even cover the old Avid stuff. So has anyone tired a homemade method and worked?

Thanks

It is worth asking Avid direct. In the old pre Sram days they were incredibly nice, friendly and generous about answering tech probs etc.

Has changed a bit now, but I'm sure some of the old guard are wtill there and if you can find an email address through the Sram front wall, then try them.

I seem to remember a friend took them apart and without the tools but I never touch mine - so not able to help 1st hand I'm afraid.

The bearings in mine are sounding gritty so I have no choice. Wonder if a watch case back opener would work...I am going to try it.

haven't come across a set that don't have grindy bearings to be honest. A little grind at least. And they all seem to still work ok.
