the biketoolsetc.com website said it a press-in unit , there for you should be able to press it in maybe with a soft hammer. it also said it use for bb that are beyond repair. it said nothing about a tool.

This is not correct. Don't guess. That BB thread into itself, that's how it's held in place. IIRC it takes a regular shimano bb tool.

You need two Shimano 20 spline type BB tools (eg. Park BBT-22) for these BB's. I've used a couple of these and, while they are not perfect, they work fine.

I did not lie here , I did check the OP ,use their link to biketoolsect.com and their web page does states that this bb is a press in unit , it has no treads on it and they do not state how to install this unit or what if any tool is needed to do so. maybe operator should check the link before he call anyone a lier. I m sorry for sound off here but no one seems to look at the link in the op.

What about this line of the description (from the link above) "The steel cups thread on to the steel body of the bottom bracket unit"? That sounds like both sides screw onto the middle piece to me (ie not pressed in).

According to the late Sheldon Brown, the BB shell needs to be beveled using the same tool used for old Mavic bottom brackets. He also said that Harris Cyclery stopped selling the YST BB due to reliability issues.
