Stuck Bottom Bracket
So, I have my Bianchi San Jose completely apart for maintenance.....except I cannot remove the bottom bracket to replace it with a new one I got. I have the right BB tool/wrench thingy, and I know that it should loosen on the drive-side by going clock-wise, but it won't budge. I am wondering just how much torque it should take to unscrew it, because I don't want to destroy anything on my bike trying to do routine maintenance.
Is it common for BB's to get stuck? I did ride it in the winter here in MN.
