Thanks for the info...
The cranks have become fairly loose and a couple of different local bike mechanics told me that the BB should be replaced. I must admit, although I've been an avid rider for years, I know very little about replacing the BB... never had to deal with one on any of my bikes up until now.
How can I tell whether it needs to be replaced or just serviced? I am fairly competent, mechanically speaking... don't have a BB tool, though...
Also, are there big differences in performance and quality when dealing w/ BB's from different manufacturers/ product lines? If so, which do you think is the best bang for the buck?
Thanks again! Dick
