    Bearing Press and Removal Tools

    Hi guys

    I am looking at purchasing bearing press and removal tool from Santa Cruz online store, but I am at a lost. For Blur LT2 which tool should i get

    1) "Pressing tool Blur 1.0" $83 or "Pressing tool Blur XC 2.0" $23. What are the difference between these 2?

    2) Removal tool 7900 or 7902?

    Or is there cheaper 3rd party tools which i can look at?

    Your best bet would be to call them.

    They usually answer the phone and are pretty friendly.

    You need the $23 press for the XC 2.0. The bearings on the BLT2.2 are different sizes and that press allows you to flip the actual press portion to press in both sizes.

    Because of that, you also need BOTH removal tools. All in all, to do a full bearing service on a BLT, you need two removers and one press.

    Edit: there are some DIY tools out there I'm sure, but having the proper tools makes this a 20 minute job.
    Alcohol may lead nowhere, but it sure is the scenic route!
