Outboard Bearings 7900's, Where to Apply Grease?
I'm getting my bike back freshly faced/chased(sp?) and I picked up my DA 7900 bottom bracket.
I'm assuming the normal grease the threads applies (there is some pre-applied to the cup threads).
As I was looking at the cups, I noticed there was a bit of grease on the inside of the cups (where the spindle will end up going) and I'm not sure if it migrated there from the way the bottom bracket is packed or if it should be there.
So, will I also end up greasing the spindle, and should I grease the inside of the sleeve between the cups?
