    enduro bearing kit comes with a bearing puller tool?

    I ordered up a bearing kit for my 5.5 and when the kit showed, there was a bearing puller tool in the box (from Enduro). it kinda looks like tweezers or something. anyone have an idea how this works?

    I have read the diy doc from intense and there was no mention of this tool. -paul

    You put it through the bearings and use the flat ends for your punch to hammer out the old bearing.

    ENDURO V-Puller
    10mm-25mm ID Bearing Puller

    For light-duty bearing removal
    (hub bearings, etc.).
    Not recommended for
    supension bearing removal.

    Removes cartridge bearings
    with an inner race ID
    of 10-25 millimeters.

    A large screwdriver can be
    used as a punch from the
    opposite side (blade placed
    in the "fold" of the tool).

    A screwdriver can also be used
    to form a "T-Handle"
    (Allowing the bearing to be
    pulled out from the same
    side that the puller is
    installed from).

    That picture/description is from the Enduro site, not sure if it's what the OP was sent but it seems like what he described.

    that's the one...

    that picture is the tool i received.

    i tried using it and it didnt work out. wound up just beating the bearings out without the tool (just used a punch and a hammer).

    How effect is that tool on removing Bottom bracket bearings? Any homebrew ideas for removing bottom bracket bearings? (i.e. ideas that don't cost $120?)

    I have one of those V-Puller tools that I got with a suspension bearing kit. It wasn't usable for most of the bearings in my kit which, as I recall, had an 8mm I.D. It didn't really matter anyway since I ended up pressing the bearings out. The trick that I use for suspension bearings is to use sockets from my socket set, one for pressing the bearing out, and the other as a receptacle into which the bearing is pressed. Use a bolt, nut and washers in suitable locations for doing the pressing.

    I don't think this trick will work though for external bottom bracket bearings. I do have the Enduro BB Puller/Press; it's pretty slick.

    Back to the V-Puller... I suppose you could try one, but you'll need to think of a good way of supporting the cup whilst using percussive force to hammer the bearing out. Don't even think about using the bearing again once it's out.
