    What is the best hanger tool for home use.

    I need a GXP BB installer tool for a project. I'm not a mechinic so I probably will use it once or twice so I don't need the electronic, titanium engineers spanner with biohaptic feedback.
    I found 2 by parktool:
    the bbt-9 and bbt-19 for the same price. Are they good? is one better? any cheaper ones out there?
    Thanks

    Best ( Derailleur hanger ) for home use ? Campagnolo R tool.
    you can make a display case to show it off between uses.

    A complete #3380 Campagnolo Tool Kit would be lovely,
    built into a glass topped table..

    I tend to buy the socket type tools because I can store them easier and I can use a torque wrench if I want. But if you want cheap try this:

    So 'Hanger' is a mis applied term here , it appears,
    I was going with Derailleur hanger , part of your right dropout.

    cannot use a socket wrench to align that.

    Thanks,
    Sorry, I guess thats the old-timey term for bottom bracket.
    Does that nashbar wrench get enough bearing without slipping? Price is right though.
