    Default Race Face BB tool

    I have 4 bb tools, two Abbey, and one Wheels Mfg and one Park.

    The Wheels tool is marked 44 and 48.5 and the Race Face bb seems to be right in the middle, 46? Does anyone know which tool I now need to buy to extract these bearings?

    Hopefully it's something along the lines of the Wheels tool as jiminy I'm going broke buying bb tools!

    TIA

    It’s the same as sram dub, park bbt79 or abbey 46mm 12 notch (going from memory on the abbey info)

    I’m sure there’s other options, but expect to pay 25-50 depending.

    Welcome to the world of bike standards and their resulting tool requirements!

    We make 13 different Bottom bracket sockets, thanks bike industry! If I'm current, Race Face uses 2 different bottom bracket tool splines, the common one Shimano came out with years ago and a bigger one for Cinch. The Cinch version is the most common oversized tool pattern and is the same for Rotor, DUB, Vuma Quad and many others.

    We too had to update our tool board again.
    This is becoming ridiculous.

    Sorry Jason but I bought a Park this time. Just needs to save a few shekels. Usually I’d pop for your stuff. Facing shoulder surgery and an extended amount of time off work so not a great financial picture at the moment.
