New BB arrives today, M952 cartidge affair. Nice - want to replace the unreliable needle bearing M950 in my new regular rider.

So get the kids to bed early and tools out in the laundry room. Everything going swimmingly, not even grease on the floor, until I can't tighten the cups any more - the recess in my Park tool isn't deep enough for the new hollow spindle.

Need to buy another tool to finish the job tomorrow night now! Arrrrrrrrrrrrrrrggghh!

I fitted my hollowtech BB cups with an adjustable plumbers wrench/pipe grip thingy, with a cloth wrap to prevent scratches, not very professional but it worked.
