Need help with project fixie....scary slow
Mar 27, 2003 1:36 PM
I recently had my fixed frame project powder coated. When attempting to rebuild the bike the BB wants to cross thread itself in. When I broke the bike down the BB came out no problem. Is there anyway a shop can rethread the BB or am I SOL.

Ask your LBS to chase the threads. If that doesn't work, you still might be able to save it if you have english threads; damaged english threads can sometimes be rethreaded to italian. Good luck.
