Nothing better than Real World Cycling's tool. The offset socket prevents the tightening torque from pulling the tool off the bb cup and stripping the threads. I've easily removed impossibly stripped cups using this thing. They have versions for just about any outboard bb cup.

Get the Park one. Use with a 3/8" drive ratchet handle or torque wrench.

I bought them from aliexpress to cheap and
I buy and use all this because as you're all right.


Cheap tools should be avoided.
Cheap tools have a bad fit and also damage your equipment.
These cheap tools will leave a lot of scratches, burrs and other marks.

Buy decent tools for your own good, they will pay out in the end.

Focus on expensive tools is not the right thing. High price doesn't automatacally mean its good.
Focus need to be on fit (often that comes with a price) and usefulness. Look also to a design that protects your equipment from damaging.

Interesting product. Would like to try it to see if it really works well in practice.

I prefer the type that attach to the end of a socket, the BBT-69. I own the wrench type but it is easier to strip the BB grooves with them if you're not careful but just watch what you're doing and it's fine.

It isn't because there is a vid on the website that shows different scenarios.
