    Over and above the usual socket bodging, edge greasing and freezing techniques? I need them done quicker than the week plus it’ll take for a tool to arrive. I’m about to throw the whole lot across the room in a strop…

    If you can pick up the Unior tool, its worth the wait, can be had on Amazon so hopefully not a week wIt

    Out of stock for the foreseeable future. There are others on Fleabay. Perhaps I’ll just have to silence my petulant inner chimp, order one and wait a week to be able to do it properly!

    Wait for the tool, its absolutely idiot proof with one of those seal drivers…just did my 34’s the other week with the Unior tool.

    I can relate to the frustration, definitely think it’s a job worth having the tool for though.

    I bodged one for my 36 by cutting and filing one of those adaptors that comes with a shimano bb,

    Calmed the chimp on the ride in to work, and have just ordered one of these. Nowt like the right tool etc indeed. These are 3D printed in the UK, are well reviewed, and it should be here in a few days.

    Oooh..I like those eBay ones. I just got the unior ones for my forks but I have a 32mm and a 34mm one both in black and hard to tell apart in the tool box, the different colours would of helped

    I did some 36s yesterday. Was all set up with my plastic pipe and they ended up going in really easily by hand.
