Evening all,
The time has come for me to give in to the ravages of time and fit compact gearing on my road bike, but I've come up against a formidable opponent - I don't have the tool to remove the Dura Ace 7700 bottom bracket! I naively assumed it would be the standard internally splined one that has served me well over the year, but it looks as though I need an entirely bigger affair, with six external notches/prongs.

I only need the tool as a one-off to remove the BB forever, so don't particularly want to go out and buy so - so does anyone have one I could borrow for a day of two? Failing that, I guess I'm heading for the LBS!

Cheers,
Gareth.

I'd offer to lend you mine but postage would cost more than the tool....

Ok, I understand. Thanks anyway!

Is this tool any different to a normal lockring spanner? Is it same-but-a-bit-different, in time-honoured Dura-Ace/XTR manner?


Cheers, Gareth.

You can use a lockring spanner if you don't need to worry about damage to lockring.

I've used a normal lockring spanner, but had to file a tiny bit of between the teeth to get the teeth to engage fully
