    Facing BB Shell

    Is this necessary on a new CF frame? I have a 2007 Orca and relatively new (lightly used) Campy Record that I want to install. However, my LBS won't be able to build out the bike until next week sometime. I thought I'd hasten the process a bit by installing what I could (BB, crankset, stem, bars, etc.) but didn't want to cause more problems than it's worth. TIA.

    One can't tell without examining the frame.

    Is there paint on the BB face? If no, then you should be OK. I have not seen any of our carbon bikes needing facing for more than getting the paint off.

    Thanks for the info! There is absolutely no paint on the face of the BB shell so I'll go ahead and install and see how it goes. I'll be taking the bike into the LBS next week anyway for final tweaking.
