    Recommendation for Hollowtech BB Tools - BBT-10 - BBT-19 - Others?

    Looking at purchasing some quality tools to service the Hollowtech "style" Bottom Brackets.

    I like the BBt-19 and will be purchasing it.

    The BBT-10 is OK, but looking for other metal options.

    I got the one from shimano that looks like a big open end wrench. It sucks! It works but it leaves tooth marks on the bb. I since bought the one pictured in the above post. I think it's much better.

    The Cyclus CU-207 tool, with torque-wrench adaptor. It's a beautiful, well-made, well-designed tool that provides the necessary stability and leverage for HT-2 type brackets. Expensive but totally worth it.

    BBT-19 is the way to go. It has a 3/8" fitting for attaching to a torque wrench, as well.

    The BBT-10 is just fine, as well. You don't really need a stupendously powerful tool, even the plastic one works (that particular part is not supposed to be super tight) though it does need encouragement from a pair of pliers occasionally.

    Nashbar Integrated Bottom Bracket Cup Bit - Bottom Bracket Tools

    gives me a torque wrench capable socket and a metal preload adjuster (though I don't see metal tool as a requirement to turn a plastic bolt) in one tool for $10. I've had mine for a couple years without any problems.
