Hey I'm building a bike, and I was wondering how you install a bottom bracket for a 3 piece crank. Do you need a press or can you do it yourself? I have a 20" BMX frame. It seems as it will fit, but I just don't know how to intall it. I have enough tools so that I would be able to do something with it.
Instead of the cup press or the Clamp, I would greese it then take a rubber mallet and tap it in *assuming the bearings are sealded* if there not try sliding the cups in and when you tension up the cranks Make sure the bearings are in proper or you'll crush them
