Park Tool was established in 1963, after its founders Art and Howard built a bicycle stand from a variety of bizarre parts that included a shell casing, a Ford truck axle, and legs from a dining room table. (Anyone remember Rube Goldberg??) Schwinn Bicycle Company got their eyes on this crazy contraption and asked where they could buy their own. The Park Tool Company was born. The legendary company started from humble beginnings and today employs over 60 people that occupy an 80,000 square foot, custom-built facility. From the first bicycle stand in 1963, their current catalog boasts over 400 products, with new additions annually.
Park’s BBT-90.3 Press Fit Bottom Bracket tool set is designed to facilitate the removal and installation of bearing assemblies and bearings into press fit bottom brackets. The BBT-90.3 tool is designed to with the following bottom bracket standards: BB90, BB92, Shimano/SRAM/GXP/Race Face press fit. In addition, it also works with BB30/PF30, BB71, BB86, and BB95 press fit bottom brackets/shells. The tool is supplied with two bushings that can be used with Park’s Bearing Press or Headset Press tools (HHP-2, HHP-3) to install press fit bearings into a bottom bracket shell.
This tool is for the removal of any press fit 24mm crank spindle bottom bracket, but it’s not intended for 30mm cranks, which require a different tool. In addition, this tool is not designed to remove headset cups because the 24mm inside diameter of this bottom bracket tool’s cup is much smaller than headset cups.

Installation of bottom bracket:
Some individuals forewarn against using this tool on a 30mm spindle-opening bottom bracket, but if you are confident using a smaller diameter installation tool, it works fine. Tap one side gently, and then the other side versus tapping all sides at once with a larger diameter tool. Follow whatever technique you are most comfortable using. Now go ride your bike.
