Help with broken plastic bb stuck in frame!?
I was getting some annoying creaking coming from my crankset on my surly crosscheck, so I decided to take the bottom bracket out and reinstall it. When I built the bike a couple months ago (my first bb installation), I started with locktite but switched to grease so that I could get it out easily in case I did it wrong.
Anyhow, I decided to reinstall it with locktite, making sure to put a lot of torque hoping that would get rid of the creaking. But when I was tighting the plastic removable cup the outer splined part broke right off, leaving most of the plast cup still inside the bike. Apparently it must have been coroded and ready to go -although I know you're not supposed to use locktite on plastic, when I originally installed it I might have put some on (though I'm pretty sure I wiped it off and switched to grease after realizing that you're not supposed to do that).
How can I get the rest out now? I searched all the past bb posts and couldn't find anything like this.
I hate when I'm "fixing" something and end up making it worse!!
I've read a lot of good advice on here from people who seem to know their stuff, so I'm hoping someone will let me know how I can get it out.
thanks in advance
