    Removing a PF30 > GXP BB Adapter?

    I just got a Stumpjumper Carbon Single Speed 29er and I've already ordered my PF30BB and XX1 BB30 Crankset. My frame came in from the seller and it appears as though he had a GXP BB Adapter already installed. Need some help figure out how to remove this thing. I've never installed a BB adapter before so I really don't know how they come out.

    Pics please. The pf30 and later bb30 adapters just pressed in. The first gen bb30 adapters were installed with loctite and considered permanent.

    I don't have any press fit bikes so probably not qualified to help. But it should be as easy as knocking them out, just like removing headset cups.
    Your LBS would do it in 2 minutes for very little money. Or it's easy to make the tool if you want to do it properly.

    Any way to get this out? So far all I've heard is just hammering it out....

    Those look to be the SRAM press in adapter cups. Look here: https://www.cyclocrossworld.com/mobi...asp?itemid=605

    Yes, they should be just pressed in. You should be able to knock them out with a headset remover or carefully working in a circular fashion with a good sized punch or small pipe. Just be careful of how you support the frame.
