    Tools Needed For SB-95

    I've always been able to do normal maintenance on my bike like tires/chain/shock pressure etc, but I really would like to get to the point where I could do a teardown and rebuild of the bike each season. Problem is I have a limited amount of tools and I know that for each component there are some specialty tools needed.

    Any helpful hints on toolsets or tools needed? If this is too broad of a topic I apologize. I have the sb95 race kit

    Standard set of hex keys, torque wrench (muy important), shimano crank key, and maybe a BB tool. Rubber mallet and a mix of screwdrivers.

    For pulling the bearings out all you need is a punch that fits in the guide holes on the inside of the switch, using that there with light tapping with a hammer gets them out easily enough. Same punch worked to get them out of the dogbone, and the large bearing out of the drive-side of the frame.

    I didn't feel the need to replace the bushing on the non-drive side of the frame. It should pry out easily enough by starting at the split with an x-acto knife or small flat-tip screwdriver and it'll come out.

    I used a standard headset press (borrowed from my LBS) to press the new frame bearing in. I think it's the same size as one of the "standard" Cane Creek bearings.

    I have been told that a "1.5" Chris King headset press" can be used to push a new busing in on the non-drive side, but I haven't tried it yet.

    Small flat head screwdriver CAREFULLY applied will take the bushing right out. Then install with bearing press as with drive side bearing.
