My mechanic replaced 2 chainrings for 20 bucks today. I didn't even have to buy a tool or strip the threads. Or worry about Teflon vs Titanium grease, (8$US a tube) or the right amount of torque to remount the arms. (Torque wrench ???$)
Like Accountants, Lawyers or Web Developers, sometimes, paying someone who knows the *F* they are doing is worth what you might save by screwing it up instead of riding!
If your goal is to be a mechanic, you need a master to show you in person. Pulling cranks without messing them up is priceless. Messing up an Ultegra crank because you messed up is, well, messed up!
Good luck! We need you!
