- Does anyone have a hope square taper bottom bracket tool?
That’s it basically. Mine needs a service but LBS was stumped as don’t have the tool.
Oddly, they kept referring to it as a Pace BB which might just be because bike is pace and it was a busy day, but it’s clearly got HOPE written on the side 😀
Willing to pay to borrow, or buy.

Do you know what the pin size & centres are?Posted 4 years ago
I’ve just had a look in the garage, I’ve got an old Brooks spanner I’ve had since I was a lad,but it looks like it could be imperial – 1/8″ pins at 5/8″ centres.
You can try it for nowt.
Edit: Wakefield. It’s only got 2 pins though, so may make a mess of the holes if the cup’s tight.
Monglu: Sent you an email cheers.
Brokensoul: Thanks, but the BB has been sat in a frame for 17 years and probably never removed, you’re right, might make a mess of it, certainly increased chances if I try 😳 Thanks though.
Ambrose, I’ll measure up and will be in touch if Mobglu can’t find one; thank you. (It would need to be posted, obviously I’ll cover costs upfront and a deposit if needed).Posted 4 years agotmb467Subscriber
If its any help, I removed an 18yr old shimano sealed bottom bracket recently and other than a lot of penetrating oil down the seatpost and round the threads, the most useful piece of information I can give is find some way to bolt the tool onto the axle
I used an old pivot bearing and a washer to bolt the tool on using the pedal bolt
Then put the bike in a workbench and found the longest socket wrench I could find to shift it
It still took a while to get it out but as coatsey has said, bolt the tool to the bottom bracketPosted 4 years ago
ok found it, i think. In my old befuddled brain,it had HOPE stamped on it but this one doesn’t. it does have the 6 pins at 29mm centers.i think the royce and hope BB used the same tool and i’ve had both in bikes over time.Posted 4 years ago
