Professionally install or buy a tool kit?
Hey everyone. I just bought the last pieces to complete my first track bike. I don't have too much experience with assembling a bottom bracket, a headset and chain but I've read and few articles and watched a couple videos. My question is, would it be a better idea to take the bike in to my lbs and have them install the headset and bottom bracket for around $40-50 or should I spend that $50 on a complete upgraded tool kit?
I have am a little uncertain on how much I would need to torque the bb. Also, the head is an FSA Orbit CE integrated headset. I bought my carbon fork second hand and it also had a crown race installed on it. Do I just insert the sealed bearings into the frame cups, add the top cap and lock my stem?
I was looking into this set for $50
