Hi everyone,

I have taken apart quite a few vintage bikes over the years and nowadays I can almost get every part from a frame, however bad the condition of the part or the frame. One thing keeps bugging me though, being those awful Campa bottom brackets:

At the moment I use a Parktool BBT4 tool to remove these type of bottom bracket, but in quite a few cases this tool simply doesn't do the trick, because the tool slips from the splines or even destroys the splines if the bottom bracket is seized in place.

Is there an alternative for this tool? Or else an alternative method to remove this kind of BB?

Thanks!

I've got one of these:

Was pretty cheap, but can't remember where i got it from...

It grips well; far better than a spanner

I used to use a Royce BB tool. It had notches and could be locked in place with a crank bolt.
The Campag Veloce UT BB-100 tool would be a good alternative.

I ended up buying a Tacx T4400 series bracket tool. It comes in 4 different versions and locks onto the axle with spring loaded nut. The concept is quite simple really, but it works like a charm! I wish I had this tool years ago. Great job Tacx :thumbup:
