    Does it matter which side BB cup you remove first when removing a BB?

    Does it matter which side bottom bracket cup you remove first when removing your bottom bracket?

    I usually start with the non-drive side since that is a lighter/smaller piece and is often plastic. Once that is out it will sometimes make the drive side one easier. Of course if you are using a BB30 or other through axle type system then it is irrelevant which side first.

    I see. Mine is a normal external BB, which I prefer over other BB standards. Thanks!
