Hmmm... thanks for the info but this doesn't sound right. I have the BBT-2 bottom bracket adapter and it doesn't work for the Hollowtech bottom brackets (since the XT integrated cranks with the bottom bracket has a hollow cylinder through it.Speedüb Nate said:You'll need a 10mm allen wrench (8mm for the older 751 XT) and a Park BBT-2 cartridge bottom bracket adapter (plus an appropriate wrench to turn it with). For reassembly I'd recommend a torque wrench to achieve the proper 50 ft-lbs of BB torque and 35 ft-lbs of crank bolt torque.
So Calvin, is there no way to accurately apply a torque wrench to the BB cup installation?Calvin Jones-Park Tool said:
Will Park be offering a crow's foot style adapter for these cups and cranks so as to accurately apply torque?Calvin Jones-Park Tool said:Torque is very critical to all threaded fasteners, in that it is needed to achieve tension. It would be great to measure torque. Most of the "creaky drive train" posts here are from loose fasteners. The new external threaded crankset bb's are no different in this regard. This is a good example of when working with torque wrenches will teach, kinetically, the various perceived torque applications.
