    Comments about Nashbar Cartridge Bottom Bracket Tool:

    Needed an inexpensive BB tool to upgrade my commuter's crankset. This fit the bill and worked fine. Wouldn't recommend for a professional, but for occasional use it's perfect. I do like that the tool can be separated from the handle for use with a torque wrench or breaker bar.

    Works great

    Comments about Nashbar Cartridge Bottom Bracket Tool:

    I replaced the old square tapered style BB with the Nashbar ISIS with no problems. The tool felt plenty sturdy despite what other reviews have said. Great deal in my opinion. Unless you change BBs all the time, why spend more money?

    Tool is OK for a single use

      Comments about Nashbar Cartridge Bottom Bracket Tool:

      Was converting from TruVativ to Shimano so the tool will likely be used only once. Breaking loose the TruVativ BB required a handle extension & a good hammer blow. The tool isn't designed for that. As others have noted, it has a fairly weak joint. Following the second bearing cup, the joint was quite loose. But since it is not likely to be used again, it was worth the $$.

        Bought this tool along with the Nashbar ISIS bottom bracket. It worked perfectly making my installation a breeze. Nice fit and finish and the depth is a great feature. The handle was comfortable and rugged.

          Not Park Quality

          • Cheap

          Cons

          • Cheap
          • Handle Bends and Pops Off
          • Poor Construction

          Best Uses

          • Occasional Use

          Comments about Nashbar Cartridge Bottom Bracket Tool:

          This is fine for occasional use, falling far short of shop quality. As the previous reviewer stated, the handle bends easily, but fortunately the tool head comes off the handle and can still be used. Unfortunately, the chamfers/cuts where you'll put your mondo Crescent wrench aren't deep and the wrench can slip off. Just pass and go with a Park if you plan to use it more than 4 or 5 times.

            Comments about Nashbar Cartridge Bottom Bracket Tool:

            It fits, it works. Nothing fancy, just a basic tool that works. The handle length was just right & the handle cover seems well-fitted & durable, though I've only got one BB R&R on it.

                the soft steel handle on the socket is a joke.buy the socket alone and use your own ratchet or bar .

                I've used the tool 3 times now. It works great on my 2009 Shimano Ultegra SL wheels. Much cheaper than Park Tools, and it gets the job done pretty easily. Don't foresee it wearing out any time soon
