    SRAM PF/BB30 bearing preload tool?

    I have a SRAM 1000 2x10 BB30 crank on my Jamis Nemesis, but the non-drive side looks to have yet another wrench required for preload. Any ideas what wrench this is and where I might find it?

    No special tools needed.

    Thread the bearing preload adjuster all the way on (the plastic collar on the left side)
    Install he left arm/spindle
    Tap it over lightly with a rubber mallet toward the driveside.
    install the driveside spacer
    install the right side crankarm, adequate grease on threads and spline surfaces.
    Torque right side crankarm bolt with a reliable torque wrench to spec.
    now tap the right side crank lightly with a rubber mallet to get the remaining gap consolidated on the non driveside.
    Adjust the collar to take up the gap, about another 1/8 turn to add proper preload.
    Tighten the collar clamp screw until the split in the collar is closed.
