I am in the process of replacing my worn out bottom bracket. After removing the crankset I see that there are no insets on the bottom bracket for my bottom bracket removal tool to latch on to:
According to the bike manufacturer the bottom bracket is fully enclosed as seen in the picture. I have tried prying the black cap off with a screwdriver but it wont come off. Applying more force with the screwdriver seems to damage the frame and cap as seen in the picture below. The cap seems to be made of some hard rubber type material.
How do i remove this type of bottom bracket?
