Bottom Bracket Questions...
'04 TCR with a BB-6500
Took the old one out and it feels a little rough so I'm going to replace it.
1) Should I buy some good grease like Phil's Waterproof Grease or just use what I have in the garage (Quaker State multi-purpose grease and wheel bearing lubricant or Super Tech extreme pressure multi-duty complex hi-temp grease)?
2) Should I install the drive side first or does it matter?
3) Also, LBS only has one BB-6500 (109.5) in stock and the non-drive side threaded part is jacked up but the other half is brand new. Said she'd sell it to me for $45 instead of the normal $65 and I'll just use the threaded side off my old one. Sound like a good deal?
4) What's the BC 1.37 x 24? The one at the LBS has a slightly different number here. I forget what she said exactly, 1.36 x 25 or something? But the BB-6500 and the 109.5 are the same.
