Very nice BB in this frame and I dont want to damage it, non drive side came off as if it had just been fitted, I rarely deal with these BBs anymore so just need a picture of what I need to remove.

Its aluminium, my tools are geared up for steel...

Ta.

Is this a trick question?

My first choice would be a machine vice with flat jaws.
Or the BB tool for the steel version of this if it fits.
Or a large adjustable.
Make sure you turn it the right way!

its just remembering what tool names - adjustables are too sloppy, I dont want to round anything off.

A good adjustable like Bahco should be fine. If you have one of course!

Bottom bracket 'fixed cup' spanner. Full wrap around version.

I couldn't get my Specialised/White industries out and it used two =f them style a bit wider.
Nowt would budge them as couldn't get a good purchase.
Bought the Tacx one from CRC and put it round and made the job easy. It's odd how easy it was with a good proper tool, it surprised even me.
