    Just did my first tear down/build up

    so i just started working at a bike shop and i got a flat on my soho today, so i took it in to fix the flat and ended up taking the entire thing apart and cleaning it up and stuff.
    It was so freaking sweet to tear the entire bike down clean it and put it together like new. the only trouble was getting the bottom bracket off, sob.... they must have really torqued that thing up in taiwan
    just thought i would share my success because i was pretty proud :-D

    It always feels good to do that. Every time you feel like your bike is getting old and bleh, do this and you'll like it again. Also, I have the feeling that cheaper bikes/parts that aren't put together in LBSs don't grease threads and headset cups and such. Or they use a very very small amount.
    Falling is learning...[SIGPIC][/SIGPIC]...learn to not fall in a box.
    Any good American will watch THIS -and- WHERE WAS MY BIKE MADE?
