PRODUCT DETAILS

This press is the backbone of any modern shop. Bearing related work is becoming more and more common on modern bikes and no shop, professional or amateur should pass over these tools. The Modular bearing press starts with the press head. 

Where most manufactures just have a glorified nut Abbey Bike Tools went further by adding a massive thrust bearing. Not a wimpy little plastic washer either, an actual bearing with balls and races. What this means is that the pressing action is almost completely isolated from the torque, creating a super smooth pressing action that requires noticeably less effort. Then they added a pair of 5" machined handles for a little extra leverage. Abbey Bike Tools use a 1/2" acme thread for our press shaft, which means a more robust thread and less turning due to it's coarser thread. It also means they have a single diameter to work with and can size their drifts to this dimension, this means your bearings are more likely to go in straight. At the other end of the press is Abbey Bike Tools Quick Nut. This simple part allows you to slide the nut over the press shaft to the desired location and then click it into place and press away. No endless turning, no pinch hazard and no wasted time. Be aware, the quick nut does require a few uses to fully break in. 

Key Features

  • Kit includes a complete handled press head, 12" press shaft, quick nut and the following drifts;
  • PF30/1.125" headset
  • 24mm bottom bracket drifts, for shimano compatible bottom brackets
  • 22mm bottom bracket drift, single drift for non drive GXP bottom bracket
  • 28.9mm bottom bracket drift, for SRAM DUB 
  • 6806 drift for BB30 bottom brackets
  • 1.5" headset drift 
  • Centering cone

Abbey Bike Tools always recommend installing bearings one at a time to ensure they go in straight and don't damage the bearings, components or the tools. Use the centering cone in the empty side of the hub/frame/linkage to keep the press concentric with the bore.
