Fixed cup...to remove or not to remove, that is the question.
I have officially begun my mtn. bike build and have run into a snag.
I am converting the old square tapered bottom bracket with one of the splined variety. (haven`t decided what yet...) I removed the bb with no problem but I am unsure as to whether or not I have to remove my fixed cup. It`s in there pretty solid, and I guess my question is; is it necessary to replace the fixed cup? It seems to be in perfect shape so I figure it`s good to go...unless there`s something I`m missing.
Thanks in advance for any help you pros can give me.
