The Abbey Bike Tools Dual Sided Dura Ace & Ultegra Bottom Bracket Socket makes working on your bottom bracket a breeze. Made from precisely machined and hard anodized 7075 aluminum billets, this bottom bracket socket is compatible with Shimano DA-9000/XTRBB93 and Ultegra BBR60 bottom brackets. Its unique inner nub provides an extra point of contact to keep the tool in place when cups get stubborn, while a long-lasting finish and exacting tolerances ensure cups aren’t marred during installation or removal.
To assist with finding the proper torque, Abbey Bike Tools laser etches recommended specs in both Nm and ft/lb. They also apply labels for each side's application, and machined recesses along the outside assist with grip to avoid crossing when initially threading the cups.

- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Astute website goers here may notice that I review everything Abbey 5 stars, but it is for a reason. These are the best bike specific tools on the market. Being a mechanic with over 10 years experience, I want tools that are going to work and work forever. This socket makes installing the smaller diameter BB cups from shimano easier and faster than using the adapter, plus it has a 3/8" drive socket so if you want to throw a torque wrench on it you can.
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
If you are installing a bb that uses this tool it is a must have. Easy to use and works great. Turned an hour of struggling with a Shimano adapter (not needed here) and other tools into a 30 second easy activity. Abbey tools are a bit costly but I'm sold.
