    What tools will I need to take my bike apart?

    I just got the hour and I want to repaint it. I havent put it together yet since I know im going to repaint it but I just wanted to know what tools im going to need to leave the fram completely bare. I know I'm going to need a bottom bracket tool and maybe a crank puller but what else? Can anyone give me specifics as to which too I need for the bottom bracket. BD says cartridge 103mm BB. and the crank is FSA Vero Aluminum. Any other tips? what about for the headset just allen keys?

    Check out the very informative site from Park Tool for what you'll need and how to disassemble a bike.

    You'll need the headset cup remover and then a headset press to get them back on. But the bike shop will often do this for nothing if you've got a buddy or two down there.

    Bottom bracket tool specific to your model bottom bracket to remove it. Another tool to remove the cranks.

    Allen wrenches to remove the handlebars from the stem, the seatpost.

    I shop eBay for tools but do what the others said and head over to Park tools to learn about what you need.

    Get a pedal wrench too. Usually there's not enough room for vice-grips or traditional wrenches.

    I'm not sure which BB tool is specific to mine. I went to my LBS and they told me more than likely that it was the BBT-22. I told then which crank it was, FSA Vero Aluminum and I told them it was a no name BB which is a Sealed Cartridge 103mm. Is this right? What about the crank puller/remover? I saw that there were a couple of different models but wanst sure if that was because some are specific to certain types.

    You don't need many tools if you are just going to rattlecan the thing (and I'd not spend any real money on good paint on a $100 frame). A set of allen keys and a roll of masking tape will just about do it.

    Just saw your post on new wheels too... there is nothing more expensive than a cheap bike.

    I did this recently to my Hour & here's what I did:

    Removed stem/bars w Allen wrench that fit (5mm?)
    Removed wheels with adjustable open end wrench
    Removed seatpost/saddle with Allen wrench that fit (3mm?)
    Removed headset cups using a long, large screwdriver & gently tapped them out with a hammer
    Took frame to LBS & had him remove cranks & chain for $8
    Powder coater taped off the bottom bracket.
