    What kind of Bottom Bracket tool would I need for a Windor Hour?

    I don't have my bike with me at the moment, but I believe that the bottom bracket looks like this



    Would this be the correct tool to use?

    [edit]
    Also, on the cheapo wheelset that comes with the Hour, the rear hub has a bit too much play between the axle and the hub/bearings. Would I need the hubs to be rebuilt, or could I tighten this myself?

    Yeah, that's the right tool. You can get a cheap one here:

    It's a nice tool, but I did have to grind the little guide pin down with a dremel to install a 113mm BB once...

    You'll just need some cone wrenches to adjust the hub.

    Assuming it's not actually worn out.
