Right - this is the next problemo I face:

Remember the problem I had with the trimble BB?

It wasnt a Shimano or FSA etc BB so none of my tools (or John Atkins in Leamington) could fit into the splines on the cups to remove it.

Im kinda stuck.

BUT we did read on the side that this BB is a SUGIO (quite an expensive well made japanese BB that was obviously sold in USA around the 1992 era)

...problem is we cant work out what type of tool to fit it.

Anyone have any experience with SUGIO BBs?

I need to remove this one and pop a normal Shimano in.

What does the interface look like? Another one that is common on Campag and some other BB's is like a Hyperglide tool but is actually the same as a standard Shimano freewheel.

I just got one of these to fit a Chorus BB - super tool for the money:
