    Awhile back...I posted a problem I was having with some BB bearings that were "pressed in". I was posting as Brian Sanderson then; the post was something like "pressed bearings" or some such.

    Recently...I saw this on Ebay:

    The pictures on item # 7211246145 on the bottom of the page also shows what type of crankshaft and bearings this tool is used on. That's the type I have on this frame.

    It's a Klien...

    My question is: What LBS in the Lower Mainland (Vancouver, BC) has this tool, and could help me swap the worn BB on this frame for a new one...I mean, do they even MAKE these anymore???

    Also, how much trouble would it be to retrofit a standard cartridge or "3 piece" BB to this frame...assuming I can find anyone to remove the worn BB in the first place.

    ANY help, no matter how far afield, would be appreciated.
