I ordered up a bearing kit for my 5.5 and when the kit showed, there was a bearing puller tool in the box (from Enduro). it kinda looks like tweezers or something. anyone have an idea how this works?

I have read the diy doc from intense and there was no mention of this tool. -paul

10mm-25mm ID Bearing Puller

For light-duty bearing removal
(hub bearings, etc.).
Not recommended for
supension bearing removal.

Removes cartridge bearings
with an inner race ID
of 10-25 millimeters.

A large screwdriver can be
used as a punch from the
opposite side (blade placed
in the "fold" of the tool).

A screwdriver can also be used
to form a "T-Handle"
(Allowing the bearing to be
pulled out from the same
side that the puller is
installed from).

How effect is that tool on removing Bottom bracket bearings? Any homebrew ideas for removing bottom bracket bearings? (i.e. ideas that don't cost $120?)
I have one of those V-Puller tools that I got with a suspension bearing kit. It wasn't usable for most of the bearings in my kit which, as I recall, had an 8mm I.D. It didn't really matter anyway since I ended up pressing the bearings out. The trick that I use for suspension bearings is to use sockets from my socket set, one for pressing the bearing out, and the other as a receptacle into which the bearing is pressed. Use a bolt, nut and washers in suitable locations for doing the pressing.

I don't think this trick will work though for external bottom bracket bearings. I do have the Enduro BB Puller/Press; it's pretty slick.

Back to the V-Puller... I suppose you could try one, but you'll need to think of a good way of supporting the cup whilst using percussive force to hammer the bearing out. Don't even think about using the bearing again once it's out.
