I’m currently in the middle of the yearly annual deep clean/maintenance on my mountain bike, and would like to service my hubs.
I can source the new bearings, and looks like I’ll need to buy a punch set to get the bearings out, but pressing the new bearings back in will be an issue.
A quick google search shows some pricey ($150+) press kits for bearings, but since this is a once a year use, I can’t justify that amount of money. I’m searching for DIY press or other option. I know I can use a hammer and socket to “press” bearings in, but wouldn’t want to go that route until it’s necessary.
any helpful tips?
