Took my 05 Merckx MXM in to take care of a small annoying creak. Turns out I did the right thing (though it doesn't feel like it right now) as my mechanic tells me the bb sleeve has started to de-laminate. He called gitabike and they'll probablyrepair it for free. I just have to ship it to Italy andwait 4-6 months. Are there any ways of fixing this (say with jb weld) or should I get it done right?
This shows why it is critical to have at least one backup bike.
