Does the Campagnolo UT-BB140 press everything out there, and not just PT/UT?
I guess lots are using the Park Headset Cup Press.
Can't see a reason why the Cyclus Thompson press would not press everything out there.

So, what's the best folks? What you using? Thanks.

I thought about buying one, like I usually to with tools, but after thinking about it went this route

and it's good enough

I would do some web searching, I didn't even go with the plastic washers..... just with what my local hardware store had

The best press fit bottom bracket is the one that doesn't creak.

I notice that VAR do one for Campag/Shimano cups and another for BB30. Does anything on the market press everything there is out there?

You can get one of these of the ebay for very reasonably price.

I just used a vice to help press them in as per the BB instructions...

I use several different presses, but the one that has the most versatility is probably the Alchemy Wizard press. If you were only going to get one press this would be the one I'd recommend.

I have the Cyclus and think it's great value for money and will also of course do headset cups. The bearings on the press make turning it very easy and FSA sell some adaptors to put in the press to fit BB30 bearings. I think the Park bb30 removal tool also comes with similar bearings. The tool will last me forever.

Thanks. But I don't think much of the Alchemy website.
