How To Remove Stuck/Seized/Frozen Bottom Bracket Fixed Cup

Posted by on in Bottom Brackets


I show my favorite methods for stubborn, hard to remove bottom bracket drive side fixed cups from a bike. Watch to the end to see the fun method using an impact wrench! I have not encountered a fixed cup that I couldn’t get out. My goal is always not to damage the frame. BTW, the pipe method does not usually damage the cup at all. It contacts the cup inside of where the bearings roll. It is also a softer steel than the cup.
