I've got BB tools for Shimano BB's and i was under the impression the tool was the same for Raceface isis type BB's?
Having tried to use one it appears that the splines are the same but the axel in the Raceface BB is of a bigger diametre so the tool can't engage with the splines :?
So, what tool will do the job?

Maybe it would have to be a Raceface one? As i'm pretty sure both mine were advertised as Shimano/isis fitment :roll:
