I recently got a used bike, and the hubs and bb need looking at. I was going to have the lbs look at them, but the guy said i was looking at $50+ for just the bb (he wanted to overhaul it). I am thinking that if im going to spend that much already I might was well get the proper tools and do it myself. Tools are a one time expense and they should pay for themselves, so I dont mind spending a little extra. I wasnt sure if i should buy the tools individually or just get a kit.
Some more info on which tools I need
my current ride is a giant cadex 890i with a shimano deore lx group set ('90-'92 I think)
the bb has a lock ring and needs one of those pin spanners. so I assume it is a cup and cone affair
the hubs are cup and cones as far as i can tell.
the dust caps on on the cranks have 2 holes in them, and i cannot figure how to get them off, maybe one of those pin spanners?
Those are a few kits I was looking at, but I dont think any of them have pin spanners, and I have never bought a kit before so I am not really sure what to look for.
Any help will be appreciated
