i heard if you freeze your bottom bracket bearings, it makes them easier to put in, does this work? if so does it damage your bb at all?

Yes it can make it easier because the metal contracts and will make the bearing a little bit smaller thus easier to put in.

like not having to force it in with a block of wood and hammer

technically yes. because the metal would contract. but if you wanted to freeze em in a freezer you would have the problem of moisture which could cause some corrosion...

just hammer them in. it's fast, 2 minutes a bearing, tops. much faster than freezing and waiting. and the corrosion problem like Achin said.

ya it you can freeze the bb bearings and heat your bb on the frame with a blow torge then it will slide in nice

corrosion wont always happen, grease has a lower freezing temp then water, if its brand new your bearings wont be effected.

that would shrink the metal like .000000000000000000001 of a inch

you would need to dip it into nitrogen to shrink it to make a differnce

And burn your paint off, allowing the potential for corrosion on the frame.

Why not just put them in? Then you don't damage the bearings with possible corrosion, and the frame with potential to overheat, plus removing protective paint, which will lead to corrosion.

And streetskeet, it depends entirely on the grease. Some actually are more of a water based material, so they would be more prone to issues when you freeze them. Also, corrosion happens literally the second something is unprotected, it's just a matter of how long you let it go that way before you see the corrosion with your eyes, or protect it. (Especially aluminum, which usually isn't used in a BMX BB, point is still valid.)

You are a smart fucker man. I love reading your posts, I always learn something new when I read them. I've said this many many times but whatever.

Freeze them, it definitely helps. Also make sure you don't hammer directly on the bearing race, use a piece of wood or something on top to protect it.
