Customer reviews for Truvativ GXP/Howitzer Bottom Bracket Tool
Review 1 for Truvativ GXP/Howitzer Bottom Bracket Tool
from Peak District
High quality, poor design
Posted11 December 2009
No, I do not recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality
Cons: Expensive, doesn't engage as well as it should
This tool looks and feels great and is finished beautifully - as you would expect for the price. It also does what it is supposed to - remove and fit GXP bottom brackets. However, it could do it far better with a small design change. The problem is that the bottom bracket recess is too shallow and the tool balances on the outer edge of the shell instead of enclosing it completely. Because of this, the ridges do not fully engage with the slots making it real easy to slip and mash the aluminium of the shell. Once this happens, no tool, however expensive, will be able to remove your bottom bracket. Very disappointing for the price.
