    Boca Bearings Bike Universal Bike Bearing Installer REVIEW

    The drift presses are plastic. Good quality plastic, but still plastic. The kit is made up of a threaded rod with an end that take a 6mm allen head, and a nut on the other.

    The drifts are size 12, 14 15, 18, 21 (x2), 23, 27, 29, 31 and 36 mm.

    I paid 26 bucks for mine during the Black Friday sale. I have no doubt it will work, and work fairly well. I just didnt realize that it was plastic before I bought it. If you change bearings a lot or are a professional wrench, you may be better off buying the Wheels Manufacturing economy press for 29 bucks and a few select drifts for 7.50 each.

    My assessment, over priced at 39.99, so-so at 29, more like a 15 dollar tool.

    A Wheels Manufacturing set can be assembled for 85 dollars right here and have almost the same functionality. More drifts can be bought for 7.50 each.
