    BBT9 or BBT19?

    Obv both accomplish something quite similar. Wondering if anyone prefers one over the other.

    I'm pretty sure I need one of these... It would be servicing SRAM Red BB.

    I searched could find any I prefer this to that.

    +1 and it won't cut into aluminium cups like I've seen the BBT-9 do.

    I too had the same dilemma. My LBS had only the the BBT9 and got them to order the BBT19 so I can use it on a Torque Wrench. I wonder why Park made the BBT9.

    the BBT-9 came first,but the BBT-19 works so much better.

    See and I was thinking just the opposite because I have a BBT - 18 like that and the thing I hate is that I always feel like the stack height of my tourque wrench applies significant lateral torque to the fittings. I feel like once I strip the fitting out, obv there's no way to tighten.

    Interesting though.
