Oregon’s own Abbey Bike Tools, manufacturer of some ingenious, must have tools for the professional or home mechanic, regularly impresses the cycling world with their excellent designs.  Fair Wheel Bikes is excited to offer their series of bottom bracket sockets.  While other manufacturers cast or forge their bottom bracket sockets, Abbey Bike Tools decided that this process wasn’t accurate enough for the precision fit they desired.  As visually pleasing as they are mechanically functional, these 3/8” sockets are CNC machined out of a solid billet of 7075 aluminum and hard anodized for guaranteed long service life.

Another nice touch that Abbey added to all of their socket tools are the machined “finger splines”. Located around the perimeter of each socket, these splines allow threading to be started by hand, even with greasy fingers.  Another unique feature, found on the dual sided models, is what Abbey deems the “inner nub”, a machined nub at the center of the tool the size of a crank spindle.  This adds a layer of security against marring by adding a second point of contact between the tool and the bottom bracket, helping to prevent the tool from camming off the bottom bracket cups.  When as precise a fit as possible is required to make sure new parts aren’t marred upon installation, the best tool for the job is a must, and that tool is certainly the bottom bracket socket tool from Abbey Bike Tools.


All sockets: are 3/8” square driver compatible

Dual Sided Dura-Ace/Ultegra:  The dual sided bottom bracket socket wrench from Abbey Bike Tools is designed to be compatible with Shimano Dura-Ace 9000, Ultegra 6800, 105 5800, and current XTR bottom bracket shell types.
