The Racing of Great Deals, it's now or never!
As a motivated and regular cyclist, you are interested in understanding the mechanics of your bike to optimise its, and your, performance. Especially the vital components of your bike such as the bottom bracket as this allows you to push down on the pedals to give your bike the thrust it needs with each pedal stroke. If you notice some play or if your bottom bracket has difficulty turning, you will most likely need a bottom bracket tool
The bottom bracket tool is unquestionably an essential equipment for checking the correct operation of your bike. It’s quite simple as the bottom bracket is your bike’s nerve centre that allows you to transfer the watts you push to the rear wheel. It should be replaced if damaged, worn, or out of synch. Check that all is functioning correctly by pulling your pedal out away from the bottom bracket, an abnormal amount of play means that there is an issue
If the case, use the chainset spanner to loosen the lockrings. Now you have a clear view of the chainset and any parts that need replacing
As with all bike tools it is important to select the correct bottom bracket tool as not all bottom brackets are the same diameter, and they can be fitted using different techniques
At Probikeshop, to help you choose the right chainset spanner and bottom bracket tool, we offer you a large range of chainset tools. Ensure your bike is working properly for all your rides
