Product Abbey Modular Bearing Press with Handles
Tool Type For the Garage
Features Bearing-related work is becoming more and more common on modern bikes. No bike shop or home mechanic should pass over these tools.

The Modular bearing press starts with the press head. Where most manufacturers just have a glorified nut Abbey added a massive thrust bearing with balls and races. This means that the pressing action is almost completely isolated from the torque, creating a super smooth pressing action that requires noticeably less effort. Abbey then added a 5" machined handle for extra leverage.

The press shaft uses a 1/2" acme thread, a more robust and coarser thread, meaning fewer turns to press in a bearing. It also means a single diameter to work with and Abbey drifts sized to this dimension so bearings go in straight.

At the other end of the press is Abbey's Quick Nut. This part allows you to slide the nut over the press shaft to the desired location, then click it into place and press away. No endless turning, no pinch hazard, and no wasted time. (The Quick Nut does require a few uses to fully break in.)

Kit includes a complete handled press head, 12" press shaft, quick nut, and the following drifts:
  • PF30/1.125" headset
  • 24mm bottom bracket drifts, for Shimano compatible bottom brackets
  • 22mm bottom bracket drift, single drift for non-drive GXP bottom bracket
  • 28.9mm bottom bracket drift, for SRAM DUB
  • 6806 drift for BB30 bottom brackets
  • 1.5" headset drift
  • Centering cone

    Additional drifts, longer press shafts, and service parts are available.

  • Miscellaneous

    Abbey recommends installing bearings one at a time to ensure that they go in straight and don't damage the bearings, components, or tools.

    Use the centering cone in the empty side of the hub/frame/linkage to keep the press concentric with the bore.
