So I bought a bike with a Hope BB and a SRAM XX1 crankset.
I want to put the Hope BB on my mountain bike which has a SLX crankset (and generic Shimano BB).
However there's some weird metal collar on the non-drive side of the Hope BB which takes it from a 24mm hole to 22mm (ish, not put callipers on it). Can I get this collar out? (Shimano BB has hole for 24mm axle both sides). If I can, how do I get it out without screwing up the BB?
I only know stuff about square taper BBs please help 😂
Sram cranks have 24mm one side, 22 on the other. The BB is probably shimano 24mm standard though. I think you might be able to knock out that silver spacer from the inside out
Thanks! How would you recommend knocking the silver spacer out?
There might actually be one pushed in from both sides. You should be able to get it off though. It's only pressed in
Flat head screwdriver and a gentle tap with a hammer?
OK I'll give that a go. It's definitely those two cups as I can see the join.
find these are great for knocking things out without damaging them (also good for headset cups etc)
Happy days, cheers Phil and MCamb :)
