    Bearing Extraction on Non-Flat Surface?

    Attempting to replace my rear triangle bearings on my Niner Jet 9 RDO.

    Noticed that the surface to place my bearing removal tool (RWC Guide 11) is not flat. Making it almost impossible to get the tool and rod lined up straight.

    Is there any tools that remove bearings that can deal with non-flat surfaces?

    Blind hole bearing puller. It pretty much wrecks the bearing due to brinelling though. Can be concerning to use without something securing the workpiece you're extracting the bearing from too.

    Your extractor is intended to be gentler, so the bearing can be reusable.

    Maybe some wooden shims putting some light pressure on it so see if the bearing comes out easy..

    Ended up returning the RWC handle set and getting this Ibis one that includes feet to extract on uneven surfaces

    Ripley, bearing, Clemens, tool

    Kind of wish RWC or another company would develop a similar product since I dont need this entire Ibis kit.

    If you're not going to replace a cartridge bearing, don't remove it. End of story.

    ^^^ totally, as removing often damages it. Pulling or pushing on the unsupported race, usually in the inner, either installing or removing a bearing very often damages it.
    What, me worry?
