    Which Bottom Bracket Tool

    I'm going to regrease the bearings on my bottom bracket but can't figure out which tool I need. The external cups have 16 notches and the only markings on the outside I can find are torque specs and it says 1.37", which comes out to just under 35mm. The only tools I can find are all bigger than 35mm. It's a Fuji Wendigo so I know it's similar to SE but can't find enough to figure out which socket is needed. The Park Tool 27.2 says it's a 16 notch tool, but says its 49mm OD. Is that the OD of the socket or for a 49mm OD cup?

    Not the answer for your question, but having a quick google of you bike it looks like a hollow axle crank, in which case, are you aware you dont need to removing the BB cup to regrease the bearings? Remove chainset and pop out the bearing seals, clean and regrease as necessary.... if you want to get crazy, use a blind puller with slide hammer pull whole bearing out??

    Thanks for the link. Looks like I'll have to measure the actual diameter of the cups to find out for sure, since the marking on it doesn't seem to match up to anything I can find online.

    I bet this one does it. Plus it's two sided.

    I wasn't aware. Good to know, that makes it even easier then. Don't have to wait to find a tool. I'll pull it apart and take a peek. Thanks for the reply!
