I have a little situation. I have to pay for being stupid, which is how it works, but id like to minimize the cost.
I've had this full ultegra K2 bike for two years, and i've done my own adjusting and tweaking... but finally decided to go to an LBS for a good tune up. Well the bill came up to $300... something i just can't afford (can barely afford 1/3rd of that for a basic tune up with wheel truing).
Basically, i've screwed up my chain and casette. My bike is full ultegra so i figured i would need the better parts (dura-ace chain + ultegra 10sp casette?). Well, they charge a bit more for partS (can find cheaper online) and for labor alone it is around $120.
Now, i do have a basic tool kit from pricepoint http://www.pricepoint.com/detail/145...--21-Tools.htm but i was wondering if i would be able to do such an operation myself, and how hard would it be for someone who have never done anything that would require a bike-specific tool. Or should i just give up and somehow over the next few months just get it fixed at the LBS.
Oh yes, there is a little play in the bottom bracket, but its a bit and i dont think ill be touching it for awhile and hopefully can fix that myself as well.
