The video below shows how to replace the bearings on the majority of Hambini Pressfit Bottom Bracket.
Tools and Materials
The tools required are bearing extractors which can be found here
- 6805 Bearing Extractor (BB30, BB86, BB30A, BSA)
- 6806 Bearing Extractor (BBright, BB386EVO, PF30, PF30A)
- Loctite 641 Retaining Compound
This procedure covers the following HAMBINI bottom brackets
- BB386EVO (used interchangeably with BB386)
- PF30 (Road and MTB)
It does not cover the following bottom brackets
- BB30A necked
- BB86 necked
Hambini Bottom Brackets have varying levels of fit between the bearing and the bodies (ranging from interference to transition – J fit). This is due to the compound interference created into the mating part of the bike and to reduce wear from bearing replacement. For this reason, it is now recommended that Loctite 641 is used on the outer race of bearings when replacing them.
