BB wrench for italian bottom brackets?
Do those hook-wrenches come in a different size for italian bottom brackets? mine was a ***** to put in, and seems to be equally *****y coming out, and it seems like the wrench (especially the 3 hook part) is not super tight, and i really don't want to strip the BB and get stuck with an almost seized BB for the rest of my bikes life.
1. Since my BB is italian threaded, is it possible to install it backwards for a different chainline?
2. If i put a 118.5 bb in backwards, will it give me the same chainline as a 109.5? i don't really know how to do the math on this, but i've compared them and it looks like it's pretty much the same.
3. Why the hell is my facking Dura-Ace bottom bracket allready almost seized? not only is it the highest-zoot part of my bike, which otherwise works perfect, but i've ridden on it for -maybe- a month now.
