Bottom Bracket Question


Recommended Posts

I'm sure someone wrote up a guide on this at somepoint. Can't remember who though. The BB in the leesons have no thread, their pressed/persuaded in (interference fit). Their then secured in with a circlip. As far as I know all leesons are like this (maybe some of the older ones arn't?).

Does the BB really need changing?

I can't remember if the BB Clive used was a specific one or he just turned down a standard BB. To remove it your going to need to get the circlip out first, then try and persuade it out. If Clive has put it in there with loctite you may need to heat the shell first to break the locktite.

I've never had to remove the BB on mine, been good since I've had the frame from Clive.
