With smooth action and a quality build, the Abbey Bike Tools Modular Bearing Press Only is designed to let you press in a wide variety of bottom brackets and headsets with minimal effort.

Where most press heads are glorified nuts, Abbey Bike Tools has crafted a solid thrust bearing with balls and races, which ensures the pressing action is buttery smooth and isolated from the torque. It can be turned by hand, using the brand's signature finger spline pattern, or if you need a bit more leverage, the brand's engineers have added a pair of sturdy machined handles, adding up to 5” in length. A centring cone is also included in the kit, and this can be used on the empty side of your hub, frame or linkage to ensure the press is concentric with the bore.

The whole thing designed to be paired with a selection of drifts, available to purchase separately, which are precisely machined, sized to the 1/2” acme thread and capable of dealing with different shapes, sizes and styles of bearings.

At the other end of the press, a sturdy quick nut slides onto the thread and up to the drift, with no need for excessive turning, then clicks securely into place. It can be easily operated with one hand and offers fast, smooth action, with no pinch risk, making the whole job easier and quicker.

Abbey recommends installing bearings one at a time, using the centring cone, to ensure they settle in straight with minimal fuss and no danger of damage, either to them, the frame or your tools.

The whole Modular Bearing Press is elegantly simple and offers smooth action on bottom brackets and headsets, with minimal effort.
