So I have an old frame that I pulled out of the trash...I am wanting to take the bottom bracket out, can this be done without my LBS, my father has a wide range of tools available for use. Also how do I measure a bottom bracket, example: what does 68mm, 110mm mean? And can I re-install bottom bracket without LBS tools?
Second I would like to strip and paint the frame and fork, also I can do this with father's tools, but is it worth it? Is it just easier and better to take it somewhere for de-rusting and stripping then a paint job? The bike is nothing special, however it's a free frame that I would like to build up with my own style and labor.
Anything to help is appreciated...
