Shimano TLFC32 Hollowtech 2 Bottom Bracket Spanner
TLFC32 tools to fit the Shimano Hollowtech 2 bottom bracket cups.
- Designed specifically for the removal and installation of Hollowtech 2 bottom brackets .
Richard Good, no nonsense tool. Does the job, in my case, to tighten the lock ring on my disc brake rotors. Best price and great service from Merlin.
Adrian A great and lower priced alternatives to standard hollow tech tools. Good quality materials, good balance in the hand and easy to use.
Gary Very easy to use - fit the SRAM GXP bottom bracket perfectly and made fitting it very easy.
banebrown Nice tool. Works well. arrived in a reasonable time frame. Performed even better than the industry standard tool that cost twice as much.
Pope Did it's job, took off the old set of bearings and installed the new ones. Classic sneaky Shimano move with the part specific tools that won't fit any thing else. Merlin did a good job on price and delivery though.
Mr Wang Great spanner, works with the BBR-60 plastic adapter.
Mr nickerson Works just as it's supposed to, fits the bottom bracket snug with no slippage while changing the bottom bracket
Mr Brown Did the job, although care was needed as it was prone to slipping.
Chris Did the job perfectly. Fits the splines on the BB snugly and easy to apply the desired force.
NC - USA Cyclist Got the job done. Simple tool. Does what it is made to do.
Gavin Can't fault and will probably never break it!
Mr Johnston At first I wanted a "bit" which I could use with my torque wrench to ensure I attached the BB at the correct torque. However this spanner works perfectly and is much cheaper than buying a bit. You more or less just need to tighten as hard as you can when it comes to bottom brackets.
spencer I bought this at the same time as I bought a new bottom bracket. I was a bit worried that it might slip off of the bracket when trying to loosen it. I needn't have worried because it grips the bracket when pushed on and there's no way its gonna slip off. Great tool for the price
Mr porsbo Works Well, a bit sharp to the hand when tightening to 40 Nm. Wrapped an old tube arround it as a handle.
Mr Matthews Works well although a slightly offset handle would make it easier to use. Chosen following prompt advice from Merlin. Usual fast delivery.
Mr Bates Good solid spanner does the job
Mr Shannon This spanner fits well and like all Shimano tool steel is tough. However it lacks a little meat for very tight B/B cups.
Mr Templeman Quality tool, great price and service as usual.
Mr Nielsen This tool sometimes slips, when you start to put pressure on it.
Mr Hanson Nice size, easily fits in the palm of your hand. makes the job of removing the Bottom Backet a helluva lot easier.
Mr MacGregor What can you say about a spanner who's sole purpose in life is to undo one specific piece of kit? Used it - it worked. Would be nice if it came with a star drive attachment so you can do up the plastic retainer on your crank arm but hey you can't have everything.
Mr brown fits the bracket well & makes the job easy, without taking a chunk out of you or your bike
Mr Roper Does the job as it should. Make sure you grease the threads on BB cups to reduce friction.
Mr Proud Fits perfectly and ideal piece of kit for the home mechanic.
