Where to find wrench to remove vintage Campy Bottom Brackets?

I need a wrench to remove an old Nuovo Record BB. I do not want to pay $200+ for an original campy wrench, does any company still make them?

Yup. The previous owner had damaged my aluminum lockring, but the Park tool still worked on it. I replaced it with the steel lockring I had salvaged from my first Bianchi after the frame broke.

Lesson: save fittings, bolts, nuts, and other odd parts and bits whenever you scrap a bicycle or a major component thereof. (This is not just for bikes -- if you work on European cars, 10mm nuts and bolts come in very handy.)

Just about everyone copied the Campagnolo bottom bracket AND tools. Sugino, Zeus and others made tools too. Park has a good selection of tools that will work. Any good bike shop should have something.

There are three things that need to be tightened or loosened: the drive side fixed cup, the non-drive lockring, and the non-drive adjustable cup. The adjustable cup requires a pin wrench, the lock ring wrench (Hozan is often thought to be best), and the fixed-cup wrench. All are available from Park.

I second the vote on the Hozan lock ring tool. At least, the pliers. If you can swing it. I don't have one, but every time I use my Campy lock ring wrench I kind of wish I did.
I love my Campy tools, but the lock ring wrench could've been a better design. Still, it works fine, but I like the adjustable plier idea.

if it just a "one time job" your LBS can do it for probably less than the price of the park specialty tools.

I needed to install headset bearing cups in a frame, $70-130 for the tool, $9 from my lbs.

You can loosen the lock ring with a hammer and a drift. I use an old brass padlock. I think the best fixed cup tool is like the attacked picture. Originally Campagnolo and copied by many Cyclo, ***, Hozan. they come up often on EBay. Ed

Sorry wrong picture. Too much cheap Spanish brandy. Ed

What fixed cup does this go to? Most fixed cups I ever saw had the standard 2 flats about 36mm apart.


This looks like it might fit one of those odd SKF or Thun CampI BBs from about '95 or 96.

I agree perhaps asking a shop to loosen everything and then adjust after the overhaul will be simpler and less expensive.

I like to learn new things about all my bikes, so I do it all myself. Got the CW-4 and HCW-5 from Park, thanks for the tips! I have torn down and built over 20 modern and vintage bikes from scratch, just never dealt with a Campy bottom bracket older than 10 yrs old. It gets easier and easier as I go

Especially when you are dealing with Campy quality.
