    Currently trying to make a classic Bolognese...😕

    Bolognese becomes more ornate the further North you go in Italy. That means that in Sardinia, it's onion, mince and plum tomatoes.

    Bolognese = from Bologna (in the North)

    I'm about to try and install bearings onto Campagnolo Ultra Torque cranks... without the proper drift tool.

    Not sure how this will go.

    @Ben6899 Have you got a hollow tube big enough to go over the axle but small enough to come into contact with the inner part of the bearing race?
    Do not attempt to strike that tube on any part of the bearing but the inner.
    It is very tricky to slowly tap the bearing on using a flat tipped screwdriver because you have to go evenly around the bearing (again, inner race only) but you can except don't get it squiff.
    If you have a vice, you can widen the vice in such a way that it only accomodates the axle and put it upside down and slowly tap the crank onto the bearing.
    How did you get the old one's off?!

    Now, where did I say or suggest it wasn't?

    I got the old ones off using a puller.

    Got the new ones on, by putting them - one at a time - in the cups and using a bearing press, and some padding for protection, to draw the cranks/axle into the bearing.

    One at a time. Then took them out, greased everything, fitted wavy washer (in non drive side cup) and circlip (on drive side axle) before installing in the frame/cups in the standard manner.

    This bike will live in Germany - need some new wheels from bikediscount.de!
