    Old school - World Class Ti BB

    Just picked up one of these and i'm a lttle stumped. I always thought these were supposed to have replaceable bearings. I can't get these cartirdges off the spindle. Is this because they're "stuck" or because I was told incorrectly?

    I don't wanna wreck this thing as it's still perfectly fine, but there will come a day when the bearings go and i'd like to be prepared. Well, if I can be.

    PATIA!
    I ..... need ..... DIRT!!!!!

    ... and cookies.

    I don't know the BB but can you post pictures? I have to use a pulley puller to pull the bearings off my old skool square taper BB, they aren't slip fitted on, more like a press fit.

    I'll get one up tonight. I can't get a puller on the bearing because there's an aluminum shell between the bearings (through the middle).

    I tried the ol' "put it in the fridge" trick, but as you've already pointed out it's not just a slip fit. Them things are on there tight!
